Scouting Report
Assets: Appears to be born to be a closer, thanks to a power arsenal (fastball, slider) and great makeup. His heater can hit triple-digits. Has a strong pitchers' build.
Flaws: His fastball straightens out a bit too much, so big-league batters can still hit his heat. Therefore, he must gain greater command and overall control for maximum success.
Career Potential: Power right-hander with some upside.
