Scouting Report

AssetsHas tremendous stuff and the ability to dominate hitters, especially lefty bats. Owns an arsenal of pitches that gives batters fits. Can strike plenty of batters out.
FlawsDurability can be an issue, since he's relatively smallish (6-0, 205 pounds) for a pitcher. Needs to avoid the big inning and keep the walks to a minimum for maximum output.
Career potentialExcellent lefty starter.
