Scouting Report
Assets: Owns an ideal pitchers' frame, plus a great fastball (that can reach the upper 90's) that he commands with aplomb at lower levels. Generally throws strikes.
Flaws: Must continue to refine his secondary pitches (changeup, curve and slider) if he wants to become a quality big-league starter, since he can't survive with just his fastball.
Career Potential: Versatile right-hander with a little upside.
