Scouting Report

AssetsIs very crafty. Throws his low-90's fastball with pristine command. His curve can also be nasty and he throws it all with a quick and easy motion. Is capable of pitching as a starter or reliever.
FlawsInjuries have always been a concern here. He's a bit too hittable and not nearly dominant enough to compensate, especially if used out of the bullpen. Doesn't throw as hard as he used to.
Career potentialCrafty, versatile left-hander.
