Scouting Report

AssetsHas a massive pitchers' frame (6-5, 235 pounds) and a big fastball to match, so he can be intimidating on the bump. Can rack up impressive strikeout totals in the minors.
FlawsSurrenders a few too many hits, specifically home runs, because his pitches tend to lack movement and flatten out. Must become more consistent, overall.
Career potentialDecent reliever.
