In 2024, compared to other LHP:
Their fourseam fastball has much less armside movement than typical, generates more whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, has essentially average velo and results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' fourseamers. Their cutter has sweeping cut action, results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' cutters and has some natural sink. Their slider comes in below hitting speed, sweeps across the zone, generates fewer whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' sliders, results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' sliders and has some two-plane movement. Their change dives down out of the zone and generates a very high amount of groundballs compared to other pitchers' changeups.
