Scouting Report

AssetsWas a true workhorse who hated to lose, and displayed his emotions on his sleeve--which could fire up his teammates. Threw hard and was deceptive because he pitched at various arm angles. His slider and cutter were good out-pitches.
FlawsCommand was his one consistent flaw, which could lead to big innings against him. Throwing from different angles got him into trouble when his mechanics weren't right. Had trouble controlling his emotions, and it caused issues with his team.
Career potentialQuality, yet inconsistent workhorse starter with temper issues.
