Scouting Report
Owns an ideal pitchers' frame (6-4, 225 pounds), plus a great fastball (that can reach the upper 90's) that he commands with aplomb at lower levels. Generally throws strikes. Must continue to refine his secondary pitches (changeup, curve and slider) in order to become a quality big-league starter, since he cannot survive with just his fastball in MLB.
Long Range Potential: Versatile right-hander.
