Scouting Report

AssetsShocks hitters with a change-up that cuts 20 m.p.h. off his mid-90s fastball, which can lead to numerous strikeouts. Can be dominant when on his game.
FlawsHas a lot of trouble in the early innings, and he has consistency issues that need to be nipped in the bud. Injuries are also a concern.
Career potentialTalented but inconsistent starter.
