Assets: Is a true strikeout artist who can fool batters with relative ease. Has a great curve and quality changeup, plus good command of his fastball.
Flaws: Lacks ideal size for a pitcher (5-11, 190 pounds). Gets into trouble because he can at times throw too many strikes. Can be hurt by the long ball.
Career Potential: Diminutive but quality lefty with good upside.
