Scouting Report

AssetsA smart and competitive strikeout pitcher, he owns fluid mechanics and a wide arsenal. Refuses to give in to batters, and gets away with it due to his combination of stuff and savvy.
FlawsEndurance has been an issue, as he tends to throw too many pitches early and wears down after five innings. Can be prone to the long ball. Gives up way too many walks. Injuries are a problem.
Career potentialUnique, inconsistent right-hander, when healthy.

Honours and Awards
