In 2022, compared to other RHP:
His sinker is thrown at a speed that's borderline unfair, results in somewhat more groundballs compared to other pitchers' sinkers, has slight armside run and has some natural sinking action. His slider sweeps across the zone, generates a high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' sliders, results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' sliders and has some two-plane movement. His curve generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' curves, results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' curves and is slightly harder than usual. His change is thrown extremely hard, generates fewer whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' changeups, results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' changeups and has slight armside fade. His fourseam fastball (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 1 of them in 2022) is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, is blazing fast and has much less armside movement than typical. His splitter (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 1 of them in 2022) is thrown extremely hard, has dives down out of the zone, is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' splitters, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' splitters and has slight armside fade.
