Scouting Report
Has great size (6-4, 235 pounds) and plenty of strikeout ability, thanks to a devastating fastball-curve combination. Is deceptive and a little intimidating. His changeup is a little lacking as a quality third pitch. Also, injuries can be a big factor here so he needs to develop greater stamina and endurance.
Long Range Potential: Quality left-hander, when healthy.
