Scouting Report

AssetsWhen on his game, he throws strikes and pitches to contact effectively. Has a great pitchers' frame. Has an intimidating look on the mound due to his size.
FlawsWhen his command is off, he gets hit a little too hard. When he lacks control, his walk rate goes way up. Therefore, he has little margin for error.
Career potentialInconsistent left-hander.
