Scouting Report

AssetsCan rack up plenty of strikeouts at the minor-league level, thanks mostly to his curve and slider--which are often used in fastball counts. Has proven to be quite durable in the minors.
FlawsAt 5-10, 170 pounds, does he have the durability and fastball to become a successful big-league starter? The jury is still out. Walks can also be a problem for him if he's not focused.
Career potentialDiminutive but talented left-hander with a little upside.
