Scouting Report

AssetsHas an ideal pitchers' frame. Is a good strike-thrower who can pitch to contact effectively. Also boasts strikeout ability. Can both start and relieve.
FlawsCan be a little too hittable at times. Needs to work on his stamina to be able to go deeper in ball games. Generally, he lacks consistency in the big leagues.
Career potentialDecent right-hander with a little upside.
