Scouting Report

AssetsHas an electric, mid-90's fastball and a nasty, hard slider. Can dominate when he gets on a roll. Generally keeps the ball around the plate. Can log plenty of innings.
FlawsIs woefully inconsistent. His fastball can straighten out at times, and they often take it out of the park. Doesn't trust his off-speed stuff nearly enough.
Career potentialTalented but inconsistent right-hander.
