Scouting Report

AssetsWiry and deceptive, he confuses hitters and is able to rack up good strikeout totals at lower levels. Generally throws strikes, too, as he's around the plate most of the time.
FlawsWill need to add significant bulk to his 6-1 frame in order to develop better endurance and stamina for the major leagues. Also, he doesn't have overpowering stuff.
Career potentialSolid left-hander with upside.
