Scouting Report
Throws a lot of strikes, which helps him get ahead in the count to set batters up. His slider might be his best pitch, though both his fastball and changeup are also solid offerings. While his fastball has enough velocity for the big leagues, he needs better command of it in order to raise his level of pitching. Otherwise, he might become a reliever in MLB.
Long Range Potential: Solid right-hander with some upside.
