Scouting Report

AssetsHas a tremendous frame for a pitcher and a solid arsenal. Is at his best when his pitches are down in the zone. He throws a 'hard' ball, which can make batters uncomfortable at the dish.
FlawsSince he generally throws strikes, he could stand to keep batters even more honest by mixing his pitches up more often. Injuries and inconsistency can also be an issue with him.
Career potentialInconsistent but solid right-hander, when healthy.
