In 2022, compared to other LHP:
His fourseam fastball generates more 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 above average velo. His slider generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' sliders, has exceptional depth and generates a very high amount of groundballs compared to other pitchers' sliders. His change dives down out of the zone, generates a high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' changeups and has slightly below average velo. His sinker is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' sinkers and has some natural sinking action. His curve (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 8 of them in 2022) has an exceptional bite, generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' curves, has sweeping glove-side movement, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' curves and has below average velo.
