Scouting Report
Has a tremendous arm, great delivery and the ability to deceive batters with aplomb. Has a flair for the dramatic and can rack up strikeouts by the bucketloads. Will walk a few too many batters at times, as his command leaves him on occasion. Must also work on keeping the ball in the yard more often. Injuries are an issue.
Long Range Potential: Outstanding starter with dominant stuff, when healthy.
