In 2022, compared to other RHP:
His fourseam fastball is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, is straight as an arrow, has essentially average velo and results in somewhat more groundballs compared to other pitchers' fourseamers. His cutter has extreme cut action, results in somewhat more groundballs compared to other pitchers' cutters and has some natural sink. His slider comes in below hitting speed, sweeps across the zone, has exceptional depth and is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' sliders. His curve has a sharp downward bite and has primarily 12-6 movement. His change results in many more groundballs compared to other pitchers' changeups and is slightly firmer than usual. His sinker is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' sinkers and generates more whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' sinkers.
