Scouting Report
Has the ability to pitch as both a starter and reliever at the highest level, which adds to his overall value. Owns a projectable frame and pretty solid command of the strike zone when he is on top of his game. Is still somewhat raw and unrefined, so he needs to build up more innings and arm strength for better stamina. Also, he needs to prove he has the repertoire to pitch as a big-league starter over time.
Long Range Potential: Versatile left-hander.
