Scouting Report
Owns both a funky delivery and plenty of movement with his pitches, which make his offerings seem faster than they actually are. His slider is his best out-pitch, while his fastball is also a solid weapon. Needs to improve his changeup in order to thrive as a reliever in MLB. Displays pretty good command of his pitches. Lacks ideal size for a big-league pitcher. His deception works well against both left-handed and right-handed batters.
Long Range Potential: Talented, left-handed reliever with some upside.
