interesting young arm with a strong track record of performance
in the low minors against age advanced competition. Shows the
early makings of a three pitch mix with all showing at least

enough that could grow some more. One of the more intriguing
arms in the systems low minors, has the early makings of a back
end starter profile, but long way to go between what he is now
and what he could be in the future.
