Scouting Report
Assets: Has a very good fastball, as well as a slider that looks potentially dominant. Can strike a ton of batters out and be an effective late-inning bullpen option.
Flaws: Does not always throw strikes with consistency, which leads to too many walks and the potential for big innings against him. Lacks a smooth delivery.
Career Potential: Inconsistent reliever.
