Scouting Report
Assets: Has a very impressive arsenal of pitches, as well as a burgeoning 6-3 frame. Is no stranger to the art of pitching. Can strike a lot of batters out. Is also a very smart pitcher.
Flaws: Must continue to work on throwing strikes with greater consistency in order to maximize output at the big-league level, since walks can be a problem. Could use more bulk.
Career Potential: Excellent right-hander.
