Scouting Report
Assets: The big righty can pop the gun at 99 m.p.h. with a quick, compact delivery, while also featuring devastating off-speed stuff that he uses to rack up strikeouts. Also eats up innings.
Flaws: Needs to work on keeping the ball lower in the strike zone, since he tends to surrender a few too many homers. Also, his fastball tends to straighten out a bit too much from time to time.
Career Potential: Elite workhorse starter.
