Scouting Report
Assets: Keeps hitters off balance with a smooth but explosive delivery and natural movement. Is confident in throwing his change-up. Doesn't get rattled, even when he doesn't have good stuff.
Flaws: Health has always been a massive issue, so these days he's anything but durable or reliable. Has some command problems against left-handed hitters, and he pays for it usually.
Career Potential: Savvy starter, when healthy.
