Scouting Report
Is huge and has a very good arm. Can intimidate on the hill. His delivery features quite a bit of deception, which helps him get batters out consistently. Is also fearless. Needs to command his pitches better and gain greater control (walk fewer batters) in order to maximize output in MLB. Also, his delivery can lead to injuries.
Long Range Potential: Quality right-hander.
