Scouting Report
His fastball is explosive (he can crank it up to close to triple-digits), but it also has great movement, which makes it almost unhittable. Also owns a swing-and-miss curve. Is also plenty deceptive. Knows how to be a closer. Could stand to add a bit more bulk to his frame for better stamina at the big-league level. Also, his changeup is a decent third pitch (but perhaps not good enough for him to be used in any other role than short relief).
Long Range Potential: Talented reliever with a little upside.
