In 2022, compared to other RHP:
His fourseam fastball (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 12 of them in 2022) comes in below hitting speed, is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, has some natural sinking action and results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' fourseamers. His slider (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 3 of them in 2022) comes in below hitting speed, is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' sliders, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' sliders, has primarily 12-6 movement and has some two-plane movement. His change (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 1 of them in 2022) comes in below hitting speed, is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' changeups, dives down out of the zone, results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' changeups and has slight cut action.
