Scouting Report
Assets: Can log big innings totals due to a great pitchers' frame and good stuff--highlighted by a strong curveball, good change and mid-90's heat. He's pretty good at being around the plate.
Flaws: Could still use more polish and pointers on the finer points of pitching. Will occasionally leave the ball out over the plate too much and get hammered. Injuries are becoming an issue.
Career Potential: Average right-hander.
