Scouting Report
Assets: Can hit triple digits on the radar gun with his fastball, and his slider may be an even better out-pitch for him. A true power pitcher, he owns an ideal pitchers' frame and can look both intimidating and dominant on the hill.
Flaws: At times, he throws everything hard. That plays into the batters' hands, so he must do a better job of changing speeds more effectively. Also, he could stand to become a little more pinpoint with his overall command.
Career Potential: Talented power right-hander with huge upside.
