Scouting Report

AssetsCan strike batters out regularly, and uses a sinking fastball with aplomb. Doesn't get rattled and will always battle when on the mound. Can dominate, especially lefty batters.
FlawsHe's not always effectively wild, so sometimes his pitches get away from him. As a result, he tends to walk a few too many batters. Can lose his focus on occasion. Injuries are an issue.
Career potentialExcellent late-inning lefty, when healthy.
