Scouting Report

AssetsThrows a lot of strikes and limits the free passes. Can be difficult to hit against, in particular for left-handed batters. Can strike batters out, too.
FlawsDoesn't have ideal size (5-7, 175 pounds) for the big leagues, so stamina and injuries are definite concerns. Can also be a bit too hittable at times.
Career potentialTalented lefty reliever with upside.
