Scouting Report
Assets: Owns an explosive fastball, hard curve, tricky slider and workable changeup for an outstanding repertoire, overall. Can be an intimidating presence on the hill, partly due to his projectable 6-4 frame. Is also a good athlete.
Flaws: When he's not on top of his game, he is walking far too many batters. Over time, he has improved his control, however. Could also stand to add a little more bulk to his frame, though he has already shown good stamina.
Career Potential: Talented starter with great upside.
