Scouting Report

AssetsUnlike most left-handed pitchers, he relied more on pure power than deception to get big-league batters out. Had the ability to dominate when on his game.
FlawsNeeded to do a better job of mixing his pitches because when he became somewhat predictable, he was far too hittable for the big-league level.
Career potentialDecent lefty starter.
