Scouting Report

AssetsA big lefty with an ideal frame (6-4) and great stuff, he can strike plenty of batters out. When on his game, he can be 'effectively wild' with his pitches.
FlawsWalks too many batters when his mechanics are slightly off, which sets him back to some extent. Must also curb his injuries in order to maximize potential.
Career potentialTalented left-hander with good upside, when healthy.
