Their fourseam fastball has slightly above average velo and has slightly less natural movement than typical. Their curve has an exceptional bite, generates more whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' curves and has slightly below average velo.

Their splitter is thrown extremely hard, has slight cut action and has some natural sink to it.
