Scouting Report
Assets: Owns a solid frame and the ability to dominate on the bump when at the top of his game, thanks to a four-pitch arsenal and an aggressive approach (he pounds the strike zone with regularity).
Flaws: Injuries have already wreaked havoc with his development, so he must become a healthier and more reliable pitcher in order to maximize output in MLB. Needs more bulk and strength for stamina.
Career Potential: Talented, fragile right-hander with good upside, when healthy.
