Scouting Report

AssetsOwns a great pitchers' frame, a live arm and one of the better pickoff moves in the game. Is a decent strikeout pitcher who displays pretty good stamina. Can be really tough on lefty bats.
FlawsNeeds to cut down on his free passes and improve his strikeout/walk ratio to maximize his potential. Also needs to keep the ball down in the zone more.
Career potentialSound lefty starter.
