He throws a lot of strikes and has the ability to work quickly. Buehler has a smooth consistent delivery that generates plenty of velocity with his long arms. He knows how to use his slider effectively and gets a lot of swing and misses. His curveball has the potential to be his most effective pitch in his repertoire. Buehler has the smarts, command and makeup to be a very good big league pitcher.
