Scouting Report

AssetsHas great size and the ability to pitch as a starter or reliever. Can be a work horse. When pitching out of the bullpen, he can be dominant.
FlawsIs a bit too erratic with his pitches for the big-league level, as he has always had trouble with walks. Also, he needs to find his niche in MLB.
Career potentialVersatile right-hander with a little upside.
