Scouting Report
Incredibly tall and lanky, he generates plenty of deception on the bump. Throws a lot of first-pitch strikes, so he is adept at setting hitters up to fail. Displays good command of his arsenal. Can be a bit too hittable at times because of his propensity to be always around the strike zone, so he could stand to waste a few more pitches from time to time. Could use more bulk.
Long Range Potential: Solid left-hander with some upside.
