Scouting Report

AssetsIs a late-bloomer with excellent control and an ideal pitchers' frame. Can log a lot of innings, pitches to contact and always keeps the defense behind him in the game.
FlawsDoesn't have good enough stuff to blow a lot of major-league hitters away, so his control needs to be pinpoint every time he takes to the hill. Gives up too many hits.
Career potentialInnings-eating starter.
