Scouting Report
Has the ability to both deceive and dominate batters with an outstanding pitching arsenal. Can strike out a ton of batters. Also boasts improving pitch selection and a better feel for setting up batters. Injuries are a major issue here, as he is somewhat fragile for a starting pitcher in the big leagues. Needs to do a better job of keeping the ball in the yard, so pitching down in the strike zone is key.
Long Range Potential: Veteran left-hander, when healthy.
