Scouting Report
Assets: Displays good command of his arsenal, especially his excellent changeup (his best pitch). Is a control artist who limits the free passes when he is on top of his game.
Flaws: His fastball isn't explosive enough to blow big-league hitters away regularly, while his breaking pitches are average at best. Might be a bit too hittable in the bigs.
Career Potential: Quality starter with a little upside.
