Scouting Report
Assets: Gets a lot of velocity and movement on his pitches, despite his slight frame. His best pitch is his cutter, which he uses prominently to all batters. Is also a very good athlete and is a very good hitter (with power) for a pitcher.
Flaws: Walks are usually his undoing, so he must display more control of his repertoire to succeed in the bigs. Also, he can at times fall in love with his cutter too much, so he must mix in his other pitches for maximum production.
Career Potential: Athletic left-hander with a little upside.
