Scouting Report

AssetsHas a four-pitch arsenal featuring low-90s heat, a nasty slider, curve and change. Has a fluid, sometimes sneaky delivery. Works quickly and efficiently and yields very few walks. Is durable.
FlawsStruggles pitching from the stretch. Can lose his focus from time to time--which used to set him back even more early on in his career. Will give up his share of hits because he's around the plate so much.
Career potentialExcellent lefty starter.
