Scouting Report

AssetsBoasts an ideal pitchers' frame, so he is durable enough to pitch deep in games. When on his game, he is throwing strikes with consistency. Displays great control. Owns a slow curve that is a quality out-pitch for him.
FlawsDoesn't always have an extra mile an hour on his fastball when he needs it, and generally lacks dominant stuff. Needs to keep the ball in the park better, as his fastball can get hammered when he's not pinpoint.
Career potentialSolid starter with upside.
