Scouting Report
Assets: Has a fantastic changeup that makes his darting low-90's fastball a lot harder to see (and hit). Also owns a curve ball. Is quite confident in his ability. Usually boasts a great strikeout/walk ratio.
Flaws: Must do a better job of keeping the ball in the ball park, especially at home. Had injury problems rising up the ladder, and there are still concerns. His curve lacks a bit of consistency.
Career Potential: Excellent veteran, innings-eating left-handed starter.
