Scouting Report
Has an ideal pitchers' frame (6-4, 235 pounds) and tremendous stuff...including great velocity on his fastball. Strikes out batters regularly and displays the ability to dominate on the bump. Could stand to be a little more consistent when throwing his curveball and changeup, two pitches that can become stellar for him with more work. Needs better control to dominate in the bigs.
Long Range Potential: Talented right-hander with some upside.
