Scouting Report

AssetsCan hit triple digits on the radar gun with his fastball, and his slider may be an even better out-pitch for him. A true power pitcher, he owns an ideal pitchers' frame and can look both intimidating and dominant on the hill.
FlawsAt times, he throws everything hard. That plays into the batters' hands, so he must do a better job of changing speeds more effectively. Also, he could stand to become a little more pinpoint with his overall command.
Career potentialTalented power right-hander with huge upside.
