Scouting Report

AssetsA true power pitcher, he can rack up strikeouts thanks to a very good fastball, bending curve and decent changeup. Can be used as either a starter or reliever. Is durable and reliable.
FlawsMay not remain a starter at the big-league level if his third pitch (changeup) isn't good enough, which would lower his value. Also needs to become more consistent in his delivery.
Career potentialHard-throwing, versatile right-hander with upside.
