Scouting Report

AssetsHas good, sinking action on a fastball that can hit 93 m.p.h., as well as a great overhand curve, decent change-up and slider. Can dominate when on the bump and he's also a workhorse.
FlawsDoesn't always have great command of his breaking stuff, which gets him into trouble. Left-handed hitters do better against him than righties, in general. Injuries are a factor here.
Career potentialExcellent starter, when healthy.
