Scouting Report
Assets: Can be absolutely dominant against lefty bats. He's an uncomfortable pitcher to face, no matter the outcome. Combines a great fastball with a devastating slider, which is his out-pitch.
Flaws: Doesn't always harness his pitches in a game, which leads to some ugly numbers. Injuries have been a problem and somewhat curtailed some of his high upside as a starting pitcher.
Career Potential: Dominant but inconsistent left-hander.
