Scouting Report
Assets: Has a bulldog mentality when on the bump. Pitches to contact effectively. Also displays good stuff. Is versatile enough to pitch out of the bullpen as well, if need be.
Flaws: Needs to avoid the big inning, as he tends to surrender too many home runs. Doesn't have a dominant strikeout pitch in the big leagues. Must also avoid injuries.
Career Potential: Solid starter with a little upside.
