2013 Prospect Preview
Scouting Scratch: Wrapping up Spring Training (4.3.13)

Traded to Chicago (AL) with Cleuluis Rondon and JB Wendelken in a deal that also sent Jose Iglesias to Detroit and brought Jake Peavy and Brayan Villarreal to Boston (July 2013)

Scouting Report:
Sturdy pitching frame with strong lower body. Throws from a 3/4 arm slot. Exceptional arm strength. Four-seam fastball operates at 96-100 mph. Fastball shows late tail in lower reaches of velocity and ride high in the zone at higher velocities. Can be straight at times. Below-average command and control. Tends to jerk his head off target and is a bit long in the back with arm action. Also throws mid-80s slider, but it presently lacks tilt and depth. Slider is flat on approach to the plate. He has the potential to refine the pitch into an average-to-better offering. In the development stages of learning a changeup, which presently sits 87-88 mph with minimal deception. Slows arm down when throwing. Very rough and raw on the mound. Just learning how to pitch. Late-inning reliever high leverage potential, but also has the potential to never make it past Double-A. Lottery ticket type prospect.
