Scouting Report: Stocky right-hander with a filled-out frame.  3/4 max effort delivery. High leg kick, also kicks right leg up on follow through. Confident swag on the mound.  Four-seam fastball sits 90-93 mph, is primarily used to set up his other pitches. Solid two-seam sinker works around the same velocity as his four-seamer and generates a lot of groundballs.  Above-average changeup sits 81-83 mph with drop-off-the-table movement.  Below-average low-80s show me slider. Occasionally mixes in a mid-to-high 70s curveball with slurvy action.  Decent control. Can be prone to give up home runs.  Has some room to make improvements to how he mixes his pitches. Has struggled against lefties. Has primarily served as a starter over his career except for a short stint as a reliever with Tampa Bay. Profiles as a solid emergency up-and-down starter with the upside of a fifth starter with some pitchability tweaks.

Note: This page will be updated with a complete scouting report after the scouting team has seen the player in person.
