Scouting Report
Assets: Has a golden arm with one of the best fastballs in the game, plus a knee-bending curve and impressive circle-change. Can also dominate with pinpoint control and command. Is an intimidating mound presence.
Flaws: One of the most hyped prospects of all time, perhaps the biggest ever, he needs to better handle the pressure every five days. Stamina is an issue, as is his injury history. Also needs to serve up fewer home runs.
Career Potential: Elite starter.
