Scouting Report

AssetsAn elite athlete and competitor, he has ridiculously good command of his mid-90's heat, slider, curve and changeup. Keeps the ball down. Walks very few batters and has improved his strikeout rate to dominant levels.
FlawsHas learned to harness his intensity but will occasionally lose his composure on the mound. Had anxiety issues early on in his career, as well as some injury problems. Is a bit too slight of frame (6-2, 195 pounds).
Career potentialCy Young-caliber right-hander.
