Scouting Report

AssetsHas a low-90s fastball, plus a good slider and change-up. Displays impressive poise and command. His slider can be effective against left-handed hitters. Can start or relieve.
FlawsIs a bit too hittable for the big leagues. His approach versus right-handed hitters leaves something to be desired. Also lacks ideal strikeout ability.
Career potentialSavvy left-hander.
