Scouting Report

AssetsHas a great arm and electric stuff (particularly his devastating fastball/curve combination), which makes him very tough to hit. Can strike out plenty of batters. Is capable of both starting and relieving.
FlawsInjuries are already an issue here, so he must stay healthy. Must also curb his penchant for walking too many batters, because that's usually when he gets into trouble. His changeup needs work.
Career potentialTalented right-hander with good upside, when healthy.
