In 2024, compared to other LHP:
Their fourseam fastball has heavy sinking action, is straight as an arrow, generates a high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, generates a very high amount of groundballs compared to other pitchers' fourseamers and has slightly below average velo. Their slider sweeps across the zone and generates a high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' sliders. Their curve is slightly harder than usual, results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' curves and has slight glove-side movement. Their sinker has surprisingly little armside run, results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' sinkers and has some natural sinking action.
