Scouting Report

AssetsThrows a lot of strikes and has a strong tendency to get ahead in the count in the minor leagues. Has a great pitchers' frame. Owns a nice looping curve, which he uses as a strikeout pitch.
FlawsUsually allows a fairly high number of hits, and can have trouble keeping the ball in the park. His control can also be spotty from time to time. Also, he can fall in love with a pitch and forgets to mix in others.
Career potentialQuality left-handed starter.
