In 2022, compared to other RHP:
His change has below average velo, generates more whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' changeups, results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' changeups and has some natural sink to it. His fourseam fastball has essentially average velo. His cutter has some natural sink. His sinker has little sinking action compared to a true sinker, results in somewhat more groundballs compared to other pitchers' sinkers and has slightly above average velo. His curve has an exceptional bite, is a real worm killer that generates an extreme number of groundballs compared to other pitchers' curves, has primarily 12-6 movement and is much harder than usual.
