Scouting Report

AssetsOwns an ideal pitchers' frame, plus a great fastball (that can reach the upper 90's) that he commands with aplomb at lower levels. Generally throws strikes.
FlawsMust continue to refine his secondary pitches (changeup, curve and slider) if he wants to become a quality big-league starter, since he can't survive with just his fastball.
Career potentialSolid right-hander with some upside.
