Scouting Report
: Former top prospect has suffered numerous injuries which have derailed his career. Excellent pitcher's frame. Throws a mid-90s four-seam fastball as well as a low-90s two-seam fastball. Secondary stuff consists of a plus curveball and a changeup. Below-average command of all pitches. Reportedly altered his delivery by slightly dropping his arm angle in order to pitch pain-free. It remains to be seen if his natural stuff will be affected by the change.
