Scouting Report
Has a low-90's fastball, plus a good slider and changeup. Displays impressive poise and command. His slider can be effective against left-handed hitters in Major League Baseball. Throws a lot of strikes. Is a bit too hittable at the MLB level, so he is usually under some stress. His approach versus right-handed hitters leaves something to be desired. Also lacks ideal strikeout ability. Injuries are an issue.
Long Range Potential: Savvy veteran left-hander, when healthy.
