Scouting Report

AssetsIs a mammoth physical specimen at 6-9, 260 pounds and can intimidate batters when on the hill. Also boasts tremendous stuff. Pitches to contact effectively.
FlawsWhen he's around the strike zone too much, he tends to surrender a few too many hits. Must also avoid injuries and improve his stamina to maximize his starting potential.
Career potentialBig, solid starter.
