Scouting Report
Assets: Has a low-90's fastball, plus a good slider and changeup. Displays impressive poise and command. His slider can be effective against left-handed hitters. Is durable. Throws a lot of strikes.
Flaws: Is a bit too hittable at the big-league level, so he's usually under some stress. His approach versus right-handed hitters leaves something to be desired. Also lacks ideal strikeout ability.
Career Potential: Savvy veteran left-hander.
