Scouting Report
Assets: His fastball has gotten better with time, and he's a big strikeout artist now. Throws strikes consistently and can induce plenty of groundball outs because he keeps the ball down. Can start or relieve. A good athlete, he fields his position well and can also hit a little bit.
Flaws: Lacks ideal size for a big-league pitcher (6-1, 190 pounds). Can be a bit too hittable for Major League Baseball, and relies too much on his fastball (his other pitches aren't nearly as big of a weapon as his fastball).
Career Potential: Solid right-hander with good velocity.
