Scouting Report
Assets: Has tremendous stuff and the ability to dominate hitters, especially left-handed bats. Owns an arsenal of pitches that gives most batters fits. Can strike plenty of batters out.
Flaws: Durability can be an issue, since he is relatively smallish (6-0, 205 pounds) for a pitcher. Needs to avoid the big inning and keep the walks to a minimum for maximum output.
Career Potential: Solid left-handed starter.
