Scouting Report
Assets: Is a true work horse who hates to lose, and displays his emotions on his sleeve--which can fire up his teammates. Throw hard and is deceptive because he pitches at various arm angles. His slider and cutter are good out-pitches.
Flaws: Command is his one consistent flaw, which can lead to big innings against him. Throwing from different angles gets him into trouble when his mechanics aren't right. Has trouble controlling his emotions.
Career Potential: Quality, yet inconsistent work-horse starter with temper issues.
