Scouting Report

AssetsThrows strikes consistently and can induce plenty of groundball outs because he keeps the ball down. Can start or relieve. A good athlete, he fields his position well and can also hit a little bit.
FlawsLacks a dominant strikeout pitch, and also lacks ideal size for a big-league pitcher (6-1, 175 pounds). Can be a bit too hittable for Major League Baseball, and relies too much on his defense.
Career potentialSolid right-hander with a little upside.
