Scouting Report

AssetsHas plenty of deception in his delivery, thanks to his gangly frame (6-7, 220 pounds) and three-quarters delivery. Has also shown the ability to close out games at lower levels.
FlawsGets into trouble when he starts walking too many batters. Must also find greater consistency in his delivery in order to maximize his big-league upside as a late-inning reliever.
Career potentialWiry reliever with upside.
