Scouting Report

AssetsBoasts a nasty sinking fastball in the mid-90s, plus a strong change-up. He can dominate left-handed hitters and strike out a ton of batters in general.
FlawsLacks consistency. Walks are still a major issue with him. Also needs to gain more stamina and mix up his pitching repertoire a lot better.
Career potentialTalented but inconsistent starter.
