Scouting Report
Assets: Has a tremendous frame and the potential to be a perennial 200-inning work horse at the big-league level. Is at his best when pitching to contact. Uses a good slider as an out-pitch.
Flaws: Doesn't always command his secondary pitches well enough. Also struggles with the long ball. Has a tendency to serve up the big inning, which usually costs him greatly.
Career Potential: Innings-eating starter.
