Scouting Report
Assets: Throws an excellent fastball and, combined with his slider, can rack up impressive strikeout totals while coming out of the bullpen. Can also start. Has a tall, wiry frame, which helps create some deception.
Flaws: Lacks consistency with his command, especially his changeup. That may force him to remain in the bullpen at the MLB level. He also needs to gain more strength and stamina in order to maximize output.
Career Potential: Talented, versatile right-hander with some upside.
