Scouting Report
Assets: Has a good fastball, an ideal frame for a pitcher and tremendous competitiveness on the mound. Has pretty good control for a power pitcher and can dominate via the strikeout in spurts.
Flaws: Still lacks ideal stamina needed to go deep in games as a starting pitcher. Is hittable if his command is off, so he must display greater consistency in his wind-up. His arm is a bit fragile.
Career Potential: Inconsistent right-hander.
