Scouting Report
While also capable of starting, he appears to have found a niche pitching out of the bullpen. A hard-throwing left-hander, he can strike plenty of batters out due to a strong fastball-curveball combination. Struggles to throw his changeup for strikes, which is a big reason why he is now pitching out of the bullpen. Has difficulty repeating his delivery. Lacks ideal height for MLB. Needs to keep his weight down.
Long Range Potential: Quality, hard-throwing left-hander with some upside.
