Scouting Report

AssetsSmooth and crafty, he was quietly a dominant strikeout artist thanks to a tremendous curve. Also mixed a slider and solid fastball to set up his best pitch.
FlawsCould lose his focus at times, leading to too many home runs (a career-long issue) allowed, and occasional big innings. Would also make fielding errors.
Career potentialSolid lefty starter with big strikeout ability.
