Scouting Report

AssetsHas an electric arm and a great pitchers' frame. He's also a tremendous athlete for a pitcher. Can be effective as a workhorse starter.
FlawsHas become more consistent in his mechanics, but it hindered his development early on and he at times reverts back to old habits in his wiry delivery.
Career potentialExcellent workhorse starter.
