Scouting Report

AssetsHas found his big-league niche as a reliever. Can make batters swing and miss regularly, due to a very explosive fastball that can appear even harder than it is.
FlawsTends to elevate his pitches too often, which can lead to a high number of extra-base hits (especially the long ball). Also, he struggles with his breaking pitches.
Career potentialInconsistent, hard-throwing reliever.
