Scouting Report
Assets: An elite athlete and competitor, he has ridiculously good command of his mid-90's heat, slider, curve and changeup. Keeps the ball down. Walks very few batters and has improved his strikeout rate to dominant levels.
Flaws: Has learned to harness his intensity but will occasionally lose his composure on the mound. Had anxiety issues early on in his career, as well as some injury problems. Is a bit too slight of frame (6-0, 195 pounds).
Career Potential: Cy Young-caliber right-hander.
