Scouting Report

AssetsA talented lefty with a good fastball, slider and change, he shows good composure on the mound and makes adjustments on the fly. Elevates his game with more on the line. Can finish what he starts.
FlawsStruggles when he is too much of a nibbler, instead of attacking the strike zone. His health will always be a concern as long as he's toiling in the big leagues, after having already battled lymphona.
Career potentialExcellent left-handed starter.
