Scouting Report
Assets: Has great size (6-4, 235 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. Must also continue to work on his command. Injuries can be a factor here, as well.
Career Potential: Big, solid left-hander, when healthy.
