Scouting Report

AssetsHas a quality fastball and one of the best change-ups in the big leagues. Gets ahead in the count and works quickly. His command is consistently excellent. Defends his position well and can even hit a little.
FlawsCould use a little more stamina to finish what he starts more often. At times, he's not efficient enough with his pitches. Gives up a lot of home runs. Injury issues are starting to factor into the equation.
Career potentialSavvy veteran lefty starter.
