Scouting Report
Assets: Has pretty good stuff, and even better demeanor when on the hill. Is pretty deceptive due to his long arms and three-quarters delivery. Sets up hitters very well.
Flaws: Does not have ideal size for a pitcher, so injuries are always a concern here. Also, he could stand to improve his so-so slider in order to maximize his starting upside.
Career Potential: Solid right-hander, when healthy.
