Scouting Report
Displays a very good fastball, with plenty of movement, which makes it difficult for batters to size him up. Can also produce plenty of groundball outs because he generally keeps the ball down in the strike zone. Needs to improve his changeup in order to garner greater success against left-handed batters. Could also stand to improve his slider, which tends to be rather inconsistent. Must add more bulk for better stamina.
Long Range Potential: Decent left-hander with with a little upside.
