Scouting Report
: Tall right-hander with an ideal pitcher's frame. Fastball is his best pitch and ranges from 92-96 mph, which has touched 100 mph in the past. Has decent but inconsistent slider that sits around 89-90 mph. Fringy changeup that comes in at 85-90 mph. Really needs to work on command and control, as he battles bouts of wildness. Also needs to trust his stuff and be more aggressive against hitters.
