Scouting Report

AssetsHis key is tremendous movement. Can dominate and intimidate when on the bump. His pitching arsenal is impressive, as is his cool demeanor under fire. Has a tremendous pitcher's frame.
FlawsSometimes, he throws too many strikes and doesn't waste pitches well enough. Subsequently, he gets hit. Also, his delivery isn't as smooth as teams would like, so he is susceptible to injury.
Career potentialTalented starter with upside, when healthy.
