Scouting Report

AssetsA deceptive left-handed pitcher, he mixes a sneaky-good fastball and great curve to keep hitters off-balance. Doesn't get easily rattled. Never gives into batters.
FlawsHas not been able to avoid injuries enough to maintain a standard of excellence. Therefore, endurance and durability are issues. Can be a bit too wild at times.
Career potentialInconsistent but talented lefty, when healthy.
