His fourseam fastball has essentially average velo, results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' fourseamers and has slight armside run. His splitter is thrown extremely hard, results in many more groundballs compared to other pitchers' splitters and has some natural sink to it. His slider has less than expected depth. His sinker is a prototypical pitch with few remarkable qualities. His curve has a sharp downward bite, has primarily 12-6 movement, results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' curves and has slightly below average velo. His cutter is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' cutters, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' cutters and has good "rise".
