Scouting Report

AssetsHis changeup is great and his curve isn't far behind, both complementing his low-90's fastball. Has a good mind for the game and knows how to pitch.
FlawsTends to leave his fastball up a little too often, leading to too many home runs allowed. Command and control can be an issue from time to time.
Career potentialQuality lefty starter.
