Scouting Report

AssetsPossesses excellent deception in his delivery, which enables him to strike a lot of batters out. Seems to have found his niche as a late-inning reliever.
FlawsLacks ideal size and bulk, which can lead to endurance issues and has already led to injury trouble early in his career. Needs to work on his secondary pitches.
Career potentialQuality reliever.
