Scouting Report

AssetsDisplays a lot of pitching savvy on the mound. Is extremely reliable and durable. Has a wicked curve that left-handed hitters especially have trouble with. Can both start or relieve.
FlawsGives up too many hits, mainly because he usually lacks the velocity to blow batters away. Tends to struggle in the early going, especially when he was used as a starter.
Career potentialInconsistent but versatile left-hander.
