Scouting Report
Used to be a starting pitcher but he appears to have found his niche toiling out of the bullpen. His fastball is a plus pitch and he can also generate swings and misses with his off-speed stuff. Control is a major issue for him, and it may have been what ultimately forced the switch from starter to reliever in the minor leagues. His slider lacks consistency, too. Lacks ideal height for MLB, though he does make up for it with solid girth.
Long Range Potential: Talented, inconsistent left-hander with a little upside.
