Scouting Report
Was helped by an increase in velocity after corrective surgery to cure a sleeping disorder. Now, he can dominate via the strikeout when on the bump. Has enough of a repertoire to start in MLB. Walks can be an issue for him, so he needs to work on improving his control in order to maximize his talent at the highest level. Also needs to continue to work on honing his secondary pitches.
Long Range Potential: Talented right-hander with some upside.
