Scouting Report

AssetsPossesses a great fastball, funky delivery due to a wiry frame, wicked slider and and loads of strikeout ability. His training as a closer helps him dominate, especially lefty bats.
FlawsIsn't always great at situational pitching, so he could stand to manage the game better. Also, right-handed hitters have more success against him as a general rule.
Career potentialDominant left-hander with some upside.
