Scouting Report
Assets: Has awesome size (6-6, 255 pounds) and mound presence. Can blow plenty of batters away with his tremendous fastball, or fool them with his outstanding curve.
Flaws: Already endured a lot of injury issues in the early stages of his development, so there is concern about his long-term health and ability to annually log 200 innings.
Career Potential: Excellent power right-hander with big upside.
