Scouting Report

AssetsHas a bulldog mentality when on the bump. Pitches to contact effectively. Also displays good stuff. Is versatile enough to pitch out of the bullpen as well, if need be.
FlawsNeeds to avoid the big inning, as he tends to surrender too many home runs. Doesn't have a dominant strikeout pitch in the big leagues. Must also avoid injuries.
Career potentialSolid starter with a little upside.
