Scouting Report
Assets: Owns a very solid (6-2, 235 pounds) frame and plenty of power in his arm. Can generate excellent velocity on his fastball, so he can be a strikeout machine on the mound. His slider is also a true power pitch.
Flaws: Can be a bit too wild at times, so he needs to continue to work on his control and command of his pitches in order to maximize output in Major League Baseball. His changeup could definitely use more work.
Career Potential: Big, hard-throwing reliever with a little upside.
