His curve has an exceptional bite and generates fewer whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' curves. His change is thrown extremely hard, is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' changeups and has slight cut action. His slider is thrown extremely hard, generates a high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' sliders, results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' sliders and has less than expected depth.
