Scouting Report
Assets: Has a four-pitch arsenal featuring low-90's heat, a nasty slider, curve and change. Has a fluid, sometimes sneaky delivery. Works quickly and efficiently and yields very few walks. Is durable.
Flaws: Struggles pitching from the stretch. Can lose his focus from time to time--which used to set him back even more early on in his career. Will give up his share of hits because he's around the plate so much.
Career Potential: Excellent veteran lefty starter.
