Scouting Report
Assets: Has great size (6-4, 220 pounds) and plenty of strikeout ability, thanks to a devastating fastball-curve combination. Is deceptive and a little intimidating when on the hill.
Flaws: Needs to prove he can develop his changeup as a quality third pitch, or risk becoming a late-inning reliever at the highest level. Must also continue to work on his command.
Career Potential: Big, talented left-hander with upside.
