In 2022, compared to other RHP:
His change comes in below hitting speed, is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' changeups, has surprising cut action, has an extreme amount of backspin and results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' changeups. His fourseam fastball (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 4 of them in 2022) is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' fourseamers and has essentially average velo.
