Scouting Report

AssetsHas a good arm and plenty of strikeout ability--especially against left-handed hitters. Can dominate when he's on. Can both relieve and start, which adds value.
FlawsIs a bit too wild as a starting pitcher and can get hit harder the second and third time through the batting order, which is why he may be better served as a reliever.
Career potentialVersatile left-hander.
