Scouting Report

AssetsMixes a two-seamer and four-seamer in the low-90s with a strong curveball. Can induce a lot of groundball outs. Boasts terrific command when on top of his game.
FlawsHis sinking action doesn't always sink, which leaves him susceptible to the long ball too frequently. Needs to improve his change-up. Could stand to improve his strikeout/walk ratio.
Career potentialSolid starter.
