Scouting Report
Owns a projectable (6-2) frame and the ability to be used as a closer in the minor leagues. Can dominate via the strikeout at lower levels, which makes him a candidate to pitch in high-leverage situations in MLB. Despite his strikeout ability, he also has a tendency to be a bit too hittable at times (even in the minors). Could stand to add more bulk to his frame for greater stamina. Must avoid serving up too many long balls.
Long Range Potential: Solid right-hander with some upside.
