Scouting Report

AssetsHas an ideal pitchers' frame (6-6, 225 pounds). Throws a lot of strikes and usually displays good command of his arsenal of pitches. Can also be quite versatile.
FlawsLeaves his pitches up in the zone on occasion, and pays for it. Also gets into trouble when his fastball straightens up. Left-handed hitters have more success against him.
Career potentialSolid right-hander.
