Overall

Interesting SP prospect, was a reliever in college and has a 8th-inning relief ceiling in pen, or 4 starter in rotation. Has had success so far in rotation and was recently promoted to AA. Could fit both roles but could be really nasty as a back-end guy and that is where I think he will end up long-term.

Command- 40/50
Control- 50/55
