Scouting Report: Tall righty with a medium build. Delivers the ball with an arduous whipping action from a high 3/4 release point.  Over relies on a 97-100 mph four-seam fastball, which he can struggle to locate. Below-average command and control.  Secondary pitches include a high-80s slider and an 85-89 mph changeup, both of which have shown fringe-average potential. Doesn't use his secondaries enough, leading to a predictable pitch mix.  Has extended major league experience with Miami. Will need to improve his control and command and tweak his arsenal mix in order to get another shot at the majors.
