Scouting Report

AssetsIs effective as both a starter and reliever. A confident righty, he can change speeds effectively with two- and four-seam fastballs in the 90s. Has a terrific curveball and plenty of endurance.
FlawsCan get rattled on the mound if he doesn't keep his emotions in check. Also battles control issues that lead to big innings against him. Doesn't trust his stuff enough.
Career potentialDecent closer or innings-eating starter.
