Scouting Report

AssetsHas a strong lower base (he draws strength from his legs) and plenty of strikeout ability (and can be used as a closer) in the minor leagues.
FlawsHas a lot of trouble with his control and will often surrender too many walks, which is a huge problem in the big leagues. Also elevates his pitches too much.
Career potentialDecent reliever with a little upside.
