In 2021, compared to other RHP:
His sinker using a two-seam fastball grip generates a very high amount of groundballs compared to other pitchers' sinkers, generates more whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' sinkers and has some natural sinking action. His slider has exceptional depth and results in many more groundballs compared to other pitchers' sliders. His cutter results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' cutters, has slightly above average velo and has some natural sink. His change dives down out of the zone and has slight armside fade. His fourseam fastball generates fewer whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, has essentially average velo and has slightly less natural movement than typical. His curve has primarily 12-6 movement and results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' curves.
