Scouting Report

AssetsCan be overpowering and downright nasty at times. Also has the stuff to intimidate batters consistently with strikeouts. Has a great pitchers' frame. Has learned how to become a big winner in MLB.
FlawsGets into trouble when he loses focus and the command of his fastball, which can lead to too many walks. Must avoid the big inning against him. Has the tendency to surrender a few too many homers.
Career potentialExcellent starter.
