Scouting Report
Has a live arm and a lot of strikeout acumen, especially due to his great curveball. Is quite effective when he keeps the ball down in the strike zone. Has added a cutter for greater effectiveness in the late innings. At times, he does not display enough control and that leads to big innings against him. His curve is not nearly as effective when his fastball command eludes him. Also, he could stand to work on his stamina.
Long Range Potential: Excellent, late-inning reliever.
