Scouting Report

AssetsHas a very good pitchers' frame. Has starting experience in the minors, so he can be used for long stints out of the 'pen. Can also be a situational lefty or even late-inning reliever.
FlawsGives up too many hits, no matter what role he's put in, and specifically leaves his pitches elevated too much--which leads to too many home runs against him.
Career potentialVersatile left-hander.
