Scouting Report
Assets: Possesses a great fastball, funky delivery due to a wiry frame, wicked slider and and loads of strikeout ability. His training as a closer helps him dominate, especially lefty bats.
Flaws: Is not always great at situational pitching, so he could stand to manage the game a little better at times. Right-handed hitters have more success against him, generally.
Career Potential: Dominant left-hander.
