Scouting Report
Has a very lanky (6'4") frame and the ability to pitch as either a reliever or starter in the minor leagues, which adds value to MLB teams. Can also put up impressive strikeout numbers. A late bloomer, he tends to struggle to keep the ball down in the strike zone (which leads to too many home runs against). Could stand to add more bulk to his tall frame for the bigs.
Long Range Potential: Lanky, versatile right-hander.
