Scouting Report
Assets: Owns an ideal pitchers' frame (6-4, 220 pounds), a very good fastball and solid changeup. Also displays the potential for a very effective curve (which may become a terrific out-pitch in contrast to his heater).
Flaws: Is quite raw, so he will need to work on the finer points of pitching in order to maximize his big-league upside. Also, he needs to refine his curve, which has a tendency to hang up in the strike zone.
Career Potential: Talented right-hander with a little upside.
