Scouting Report
Owns a great pitchers' frame, a live arm and one of the better pickoff moves in the game. Is a decent strikeout pitcher who displays pretty good stamina. Can be really tough on left-handed bats. Needs to cut down on his free passes and improve his strikeout/walk ratio to maximize output. Also needs to keep the ball down in the zone more. Injuries are a big issue with him.
Long Range Potential: Veteran left-hander, when healthy.
