Scouting Report

AssetsOwns good fastball command and a solid slider. Generally throws strikes. Is a starter by trade but can also work out of the bullpen, which adds to his overall value.
FlawsDoesn't have a great changeup, and as a starter his fastball is somewhat limited in velocity. Therefore, his future may be best served pitching out of the 'pen.
Career potentialVersatile right-hander with a little upside.
