Scouting Report
Assets: Can be masterful at times, and his drop-down-to-the-side arm angle can be really difficult to pick up for right-handed batters. Has strikeout ability. Induces plenty of groundballs.
Flaws: Must work on harnessing his pitches better, because at times he loses command and release point. Also needs to reduce his number of free passes and become more consistent, in general.
Career Potential: Solid, quirky starter.
