Scouting Report

AssetsEasily and aggressively pounds fastballs in on batters, and breaks a lot of bats along the way. Has a decent set of complementary pitches, including a slider and changeup.
FlawsHis fastball doesn't have a lot of movement at times, resulting in long balls and big innings. Can give up too many free passes and may at times need to manage games better. Lacks consistency.
Career potentialTalented, yet inconsistent right-hander.
