Scouting Report

AssetsIs usually around the plate. Has good control of an excellent arsenal, including a great curve that he uses as an out-pitch. Battles on the mound, is quite intense and a true gamer.
FlawsLeaving breaking stuff out over the plate often gets him burned. Is at times too much around the plate, making him vulnerable to free swingers. Injuries have been an issue.
Career potentialSolid veteran starter.
