Scouting Report

AssetsExcels by challenging batters constantly, using his fastball and a hard breaking curve he relies on regularly. Possesses tremendous control and can work inside. Has persevered despite a long history of significant injuries.
FlawsInjury and durability problems have wreaked havoc with his career. Hitters sometimes attack him on his first pitch, since he's in the zone so much. He sometimes throws his curve too often (which can put strain on his arm).
Career potentialOft-injured starter with great stuff.
