Scouting Report
Assets: Is already a true pitcher who knows how to set batters up. Owns a solid fastball and even better slider, which is his go-to pitch for strikeouts. He keeps the ball down in the zone and throws a lot of first-pitch strikes.
Flaws: The only thing that can hold him back is a lack of consistency in his delivery, which can at times lead to bouts of wildness and a propensity to walk a few too many hitters. Needs to add far more bulk to his frame.
Career Potential: Excellent left-hander with good upside.
