His fourseam fastball has some natural sinking action, has essentially average velo, results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' fourseamers and has slight armside run. His slider results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' sliders and has some two-plane movement. His cutter results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' cutters and has some natural sink. His change is slightly firmer than usual, results in somewhat more groundballs compared to other pitchers' changeups, has slight armside fade and has some natural sink to it. His curve is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' curves, results in many more groundballs compared to other pitchers' curves and has primarily 12-6 movement. His sinker (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 8 of them in 2022) is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' sinkers, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' sinkers, has slight armside run and has some natural sinking action.
