Scouting Report

AssetsHe can rack up the strikeouts thanks to a low-90s fastball with good movement. Also uses a great slider as an effective out-pitch against left-handed hitters.
FlawsFalls behind in the count a little too often, mainly due to shoddy command. That leads to too many walks, and too many base-runners in general.
Career potentialVeteran left-handed reliever, when healthy.
