Scouting Report: Tall, thin right-hander building back up after Tommy John surgery in September 2010. Throws from a 3/4 arm slot. Fastball sits 92-93 mph and can top out at 95. Shows heavy, sinking action in the lower tier of the strike zone. Best suited to operate below the thighs. Average fastball command. 79-82 mph breaking ball presently has a 3/4 slider look to it. Can be tight at times and break hard off the plate. Better look at pitch will come as he continues to get further away from surgery. Solid-average 82-83 mph fading changeup. Creates similar arm speed to his fastball when throwing it and demonstrates solid feel of offering. Needs work keeping pace of delivery consistent. Overthrows his fastball, which causes periods of wildness. Served a 50-game suspension in 2012 for a second positive test for a drug of abuse (marijuana) and was held out of games for the rest of the season by the organization. He has undergone rehabilitative treatment.
