Scouting Report
Blessed with an electric arm and strong lower base, he generates great velocity on his fastball and owns outstanding strikeout ability overall. Can both start or relieve, as necessary. In order to become either a dominant starter or late-inning closer in the big leagues, he will need to curb his penchant for walking too many hitters. Also needs to keep his weight in check.
Long Range Potential: Versatile, dominant right-hander with good upside.
