His slider generates a high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' sliders, has primarily 12-6 movement, results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' sliders and has some two-plane movement. His sinker generates a high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' sinkers, has surprisingly little armside run, results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' sinkers, has well above average velo and has virtually no sinking action reminiscent of a true sinker. His fourseam fastball generates more whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, has slightly above average velo, has slightly less natural movement than typical and has some added backspin. His change is much firmer than usual, has slight cut action, has an extreme amount of backspin and results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' changeups.
