Scouting Report

AssetsSpots his fastball and owns one of the best changeups in the big leagues. Gets ahead in the count and works quickly. His command is consistently excellent. Defends his position well and can even hit a little.
FlawsNever really had the stamina to finish what he started, so he won't get it now. At times, he's not efficient enough with his pitches. Gives up a lot of home runs. Injury issues are starting to factor in a lot more.
Career potentialSavvy veteran lefty starter.
