Scouting Report
Assets: Displays very good command of his solid arsenal: fastball, curveball and changeup. His curveball might be his go-to delivery. Does a good job of keeping the ball down in the strike zone.
Flaws: Lacks a dominant strikeout pitch for Major League Baseball, which could limit his level of success at the highest level. Injuries and a lack of stamina are also potential problems for him.
Career Potential: Solid right-hander with some upside.
