Scouting Report

AssetsHas an almost perfect pitcher's body and the weaponry to dominate on the bump. Is also an outstanding athlete and fields his position with aplomb. Can rack up impressive strikeout totals.
FlawsNeeds to harness his command a little better, as he can surrender too many long balls whenever it eludes him. So, he must continue to work on limiting the damage when things aren't going well.
Career potentialElite lefty starter.
