Scouting Report
Assets: Had three main pitches that he threw quite effectively: a mid-90's fastball, changeup and a dizzying curve that was his main strikeout pitch. Could dominate a lineup when on his game.
Flaws: Bases on balls were his biggest issue. He also had a tendency to lose his focus and concentration. Could also be somewhat injury-riddled, which hindered his value slightly.
Career Potential: Inconsistent but talented right-hander.
