In 2022, compared to other RHP:
His sinker generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' sinkers, has less armside run than typical, has little sinking action compared to a true sinker, results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' sinkers and has slightly above average velo. His change is much firmer than usual and has some natural sink to it. His slider has primarily 12-6 movement. His fourseam fastball (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 1 of them in 2022) has heavy sinking action, is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, has slight armside run and has slightly below average velo.
