Scouting Report

AssetsA tall southpaw, his fastball sat in the low 90's and he complemented it with a slider and change. Was versatile enough to start or relieve. Wasn't hindered when pitching under stress.
FlawsRunners would take great advantage of him, since he lacked a good pick-off move for a left-hander and was slow to home plate. Also had some trouble with his command.
Career potentialVersatile lefty.
