Scouting Report
Assets: Has a great pitchers' frame (6-3, 212 pounds), a feel for pitching and the ability to dominate on the mound when he gets in a groove. Strikeouts are a big part of his game in the big leagues.
Flaws: Can get hit hard when he loses his command, so he needs more refinement with his pitches. Elbow issues have also been a concern. Serves up a lot of home runs when his pitches elevate.
Career Potential: Excellent right-hander, when healthy.
