His change generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' changeups, has surprising cut action and is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' changeups. His curve has an exceptional bite, results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' curves, has slight glove-side movement and has slightly below average velo. His splitter is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' splitters, has slight cut action and has movement that suggests a lot of backspin.
