Scouting Report

AssetsOwns an explosive fastball, hard curve, tricky slider and workable changeup for an outstanding repertoire, overall. Can be an intimidating presence on the hill, partly due to his projectable 6-4 frame. Is also a good athlete.
FlawsWhen he's not on top of his game, he is walking far too many batters. Over time, he has improved his control, however. Could also stand to add a little more bulk to his frame, though he has already shown good stamina.
Career potentialTalented starter with great upside.
