Scouting Report

AssetsThrows very hard from a three-quarter delivery for both power and deception. Also has decent secondary pitches when he's on his game.
FlawsIs somewhat raw, since he began his career as an infielder. Must curb his penchant for walking hitters in order to succeed in the big leagues.
Career potentialRaw reliever with some upside.
