Scouting Report
Owns an explosive fastball that can strike plenty of batters out as a stand-alone offering. He adds a big, looping curveball to his pitching mix, which can be a devastating combination for any hitter. Has projectable size, too. His changeup needs a lot of work, so he might be reduced to a late-inning relief role in the major leagues if he cannot improve his third-best pitch. Also needs more work on the command of his fastball (and walks in general).
Long Range Potential: Talented power pitcher with good upside.
