In 2023, compared to other LHP:
Their fourseam fastball generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, is blazing fast, has some natural sinking action and has slightly less natural movement than typical. Their slider is thrown extremely hard. Their sinker is a real worm killer that generates an extreme number of groundballs compared to other pitchers' sinkers, has surprisingly little armside run and has well above average velo. Their change is thrown extremely hard, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' changeups, generates fewer whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' changeups, has slight cut action and has some natural sink to it.
