Scouting Report
Assets: Is plenty versatile and a team-first pitcher. His fastball can at times run in the high 90's and his curveball can be a real bender. Has the stuff to rack up strikeouts.
Flaws: His fastball can be a little too straight at times and he can lose command of his curveball, too, so he tends to lack consistency. Gives up too many walks.
Career Potential: Decent right-hander.
