Scouting Report

AssetsThough diminutive, he can generate tremendous velocity with his fastball (often reaching triple digits). Also flashes a great curve that off-sets his fastball beautifully.
FlawsMust improve his control and command of his impressive arsenal in order to maximize his vast big-league potential as a starter. Otherwise, he may wind up in the bullpen.
Career potentialTalented, though diminutive right-hander with good upside.
