Scouting Report
Owns a projectable (6-4, 195 pounds) frame, plus excellent ability to throw strikes with consistency. Is also a very good athlete for a pitcher. Has a good variety of pitches to choose from. Lacks ideal velocity on his fastball, so he may not be able to get away with pitching upstairs in Major League Baseball. Needs more work on delivery repetition and consistency.
Long Range Potential: Lanky left-hander.
