Scouting Report
Assets: A good athlete (he was formerly a third baseman and basketball star in high school), he is adept at getting ahead in the count with his fastball. Adds a quality changeup and serviceable breaking pitch.
Flaws: Does not possess a dominant fastball, so he can be a bit too hittable for Major League Baseball standards. Injuries have been an issue in his development, so he must display greater durability over time.
Career Potential: Solid right-hander with some upside.
