Scouting Report

AssetsCan be deadly against left-handed hitters and owns the ability to strike batters out in key situations. Is effective on consecutive days. Can even start in a pinch.
FlawsDoes not have the ideal pitchers' frame. Isn't nearly as effective against right-handed hitters. Needs to curb his penchant for walks at the highest level.
Career potentialVersatile veteran left-hander.
