Scouting Report
Appears to be born to be a closer, thanks to a power arsenal (fastball, slider) and great makeup. His heater can hit triple-digits at times. Also has a strong pitchers' build. His fastball straightens out a bit too much, so big-league batters can still hit his heat. Therefore, he must gain greater command of his arsenal for maximum success.
Long Range Potential: Power right-hander.
