Scouting Report

AssetsBoasts heat that can top out at around 97 m.p.h, and also has a great slider and emerging changeup. Can rack up strikeouts, especially against lefty bats.
FlawsStill has work to do on his command and endurance. His smallish frame is a concern, because he has already endured plenty of injury issues.
