Scouting Report
Assets: Mixes a two-seamer and four-seamer in the low-90's with a strong curveball. Can induce a lot of groundball outs. Boasts terrific command when on top of his game. Is also a bit deceptive.
Flaws: His sinking action doesn't always sink, which leaves him susceptible to the long ball too frequently. His changeup is only an average pitch. Overall, he can be a bit too hittable in the bigs.
Career Potential: Solid veteran starter.
