Scouting Report

AssetsHas a wide variety of pitches, thanks to his training as a starter. Is a versatile, hard-nosed hurler who can be used in a variety of situations.
FlawsFailed as a starter, largely due to a lack of stamina. Can get hit hard if overexposed as a reliever as well. Can also get into trouble if his fastball straightens out.
Career potentialVersatile lefty reliever.
