In 2022, compared to other RHP:
His fourseam fastball has below average velo, generates fewer whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, has some natural sinking action, results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' fourseamers and has slightly less natural movement than typical. His slider is a real worm killer that generates an extreme number of groundballs compared to other pitchers' sliders, has below average velo, has primarily 12-6 movement and has some two-plane movement. His change is slightly firmer than usual and has slight armside fade.
