Scouting Report

Tweener who would be better suited as RP, but should continue to stretch out as a starter to improve his arsenal and command. Primarily works as a two pitch pitcher with a good fastball and curveball combination. Scouts have noted that delivery could still use some refinement to create a safer arm action. Has the potential to be middle rotation starter, but is more likely a late-inning reliever. Missed time in 2012 due to injury.

Fastball: 91-94 mph but fairly straight. Could add a tick or two in velocity if moved to bullpen
Changeup: 81-84 mph with decent fade, sometimes tips this pitch. Lags behind other two pitches
Curveball: 78-82 mph power curve with some good bite and depth. Commands well.
