Scouting Report
Assets: Has a four-pitch arsenal featuring low-90's heat, a nasty slider, curve and change. Has a fluid, sometimes sneaky delivery. Works quickly and efficiently and yields very few walks.
Flaws: Struggles pitching from the stretch. Can lose his focus from time to time. Will give up his share of hits because he's around the plate so much. Injuries have become an issue here.
Career Potential: Excellent veteran left-handed starter, when healthy.
