Scouting Report

AssetsWhen he's on his game, he is locating his fastball and using it effectively to set it his go-to changeup, which can generate strikeouts at lower levels. Is rather deceptive and can keep runners close at first base.
FlawsIs somewhat erratic and lacks the control and command needed to be a big winner at the big-league level. Doesn't have great fastball velocity, which complicates matters. Lacks ideal size and stamina as a starter.
Career potentialDecent left-hander with some upside.
