Let’s get it out of the way, he missed 2015 with elbow tendinitis. That injury always scares me especially when it is a young pitcher. So everything following assumes he recovers just fine. He has a low 90s fastball and two other pitches, one being plus. His curve is a huge one-to-seven breaking pitch that can get many a talented batter out. He should grow into a harder fastball but again, the injury concerns remain. When he is on he is very good but injury concerns are there already. Even missing one year puts him that much farther behind the power curve. If healthy and refined he can be a number three starter in the rotation but he could just as easily flame out due to injuries.
