Scouting Report
Assets: A towering right-hander with an ideal pitchers' frame (6-6, 210 pounds), he has very good sinking movement on his fastball and a great changeup. Displays great command of the strike zone. Can dominate under pressure.
Flaws: What may prevent him from becoming a big winner in the bigs is his lack of a dominant breaking pitch, though his slider is improving. It may also prevent him from becoming a big strikeout pitcher. Injuries are an issue.
Career Potential: Excellent right-hander, when healthy.
