Scouting Report
Assets: A gutsy lefty with a great arm and delivery, he challenges hitters effectively and can break a lot of bats along the way. When he is on his game, he throws plenty of strikes and throws a wide variety of pitches.
Flaws: Does not have ideal size (6-0, 180 pounds) for a pitcher, so he must prove capable of pitching deep in games. Injuries are also a concern here. Hasn't been as dominant in the minor leagues as expected.
Career Potential: Talented lefty with good upside.
