His change has below average velo and results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' changeups. His cutter is a real worm killer that generates an extreme number of groundballs compared to other pitchers' cutters, has extreme cut action, has slightly below average velo and has some natural sink. His fourseam fastball has much less armside movement than typical, has below average velo, results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' fourseamers and has some added backspin. His curve (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 16 of them in 2022) has an exceptional bite, generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' curves, has primarily 12-6 movement and results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' curves. His slider (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 9 of them in 2022) generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' sliders, has exceptional depth, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' sliders, has short glove-side cut and has below average velo.
