Scouting Report
Can be absolutely dominant against lefty bats. He is an uncomfortable pitcher to face, no matter the outcome. Combines a great fastball with a devastating slider, which is his out-pitch. Does not always harness his pitches in a game, which leads to some ugly numbers. Injuries have been a problem and somewhat curtailed some of his high upside as a starting pitcher.
Long Range Potential: Inconsistent, veteran left-hander.
