Scouting Report

AssetsCan be somewhat intimidating on the mound, due to his massive frame. Has durability and strikeout ability. Can log plenty of innings and even lead a staff.
FlawsCan be too hittable at times, which gets him into trouble. His fastball straightens out too much, so he serves up a lot of homers. Hitters are more comfortable the more they see him.
Career potentialSolid veteran starter.
