Scouting Report

AssetsHas a massive frame (6-4, 240 pounds) and solid arsenal of pitches. Usually throws plenty of strikes. Is cool under pressure and typically crafty for a left-hander.
FlawsDoesn't often blow hitters away with his fastball, so he can never lose command of his pitches without paying for it by getting hit hard. Injuries are a factor, too.
Career potentialSolid left-hander, when healthy.
