Scouting Report
A power pitcher with a live arm, he throws a mid-90s fastball, a big breaking curve, decent slider and great changeup. When aggressive, he piles up the K's (and wins a lot of games). Could use more stamina to maximize his full big-league acumen. Needs to avoid the free pass a little more often. The big inning can do him in at times. Injuries are also a factor here.
Long Range Potential: Veteran right-hander, when healthy.
