Scouting Report
Assets: Has an explosive fastball that can reach the mid-to-upper-90's on a regular basis. Also adds a slider that can be a devastating delivery. Seems to have found his niche as a reliever in the minors.
Flaws: Injuries have been a huge factor in his development, so stamina and endurance remain issues with him. Another problem is a relative lack of command of his arsenal. His changeup is mediocre.
Career Potential: Inconsistent, hard-throwing right-hander.
