Scouting Report

AssetsBoasts an explosive fastball, intimidation qualities and a massive pitchers' frame (6-5, 250 pounds). Jumps off the mound, creating plenty of deception in his delivery.
FlawsInjuries have been a factor, so his overall stamina has come under question. Sometimes, he lacks movement in his pitches, and a straight fastball can be hit a long way.
Career potentialQuality late-inning reliever with some upside.
