Scouting Report
Throws exceptionally hard and can reach triple digits with his fastball. Adds a slider with the potential to become another dominant offering. Owns the confidence of a true ace pitcher. Needs to become better at repeating his delivery in order to maximize his tremendous arm in Major League Baseball. At times, he can be guilty of overthrowing his heater.
Long Range Potential: Hard-throwing, talented right-hander with big upside.
