He has numbers like a power pitcher, but he really isn't. Fastball usually sits between 89-92, has a nice curve, and his out pitch is some sort of cutter. He's still pretty young and lanky, so he might still add some mph. What most scouts say is his biggest asset is that he has the biggest heart of any Chicago pitching prospect since Black Jack. He'd definitely be one of the "grinder" types that KW likes.
