His fourseam fastball has well above average velo and has slightly less natural movement than typical. His curve has an exceptional bite, has primarily 12-6 movement and results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' curves. His change results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' changeups, has slight cut action, has a lot of backspin and is slightly firmer than usual. His slider is thrown extremely hard, generates fewer whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' sliders, results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' sliders and has less than expected depth.
