Their fourseam fastball generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, has some natural sinking action and has well above average velo. Their slider sweeps across the zone and has some two-plane movement. Their sinker is blazing fast, generates fewer whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' sinkers and has some natural sinking action. Their splitter generates fewer whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' splitters, results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' splitters, has slight cut action, has some natural sink to it and is slightly firmer than usual. Their cutter (take this with a grain of salt because they've only thrown 19 of them in 2024) generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' cutters, is blazing fast, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' cutters, has some natural sink and has strong cutting action. Their change (take this with a grain of salt because they've only thrown 13 of them in 2024) is thrown extremely hard, generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' changeups, has an obvious armside fade, dives down out of the zone and is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' changeups.
