In 2022, compared to other RHP:
His fourseam fastball generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, has less armside movement than typical and has well above average velo. His slider generates more whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' sliders, results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' sliders, has short glove-side cut and has some two-plane movement. His change is thrown extremely hard and generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' changeups. His cutter has heavy sink, has extreme cut action and is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' cutters. His curve (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 15 of them in 2022) is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' curves, results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' curves and has slight glove-side movement. His sinker (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 2 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 and has slightly above average velo.
