Scouting Report
Assets: A big left-hander with an ideal frame (6-4) and great stuff, he can strike plenty of batters out. When on his game, he can be 'effectively wild' with his pitches.
Flaws: Walks too many batters when his mechanics are slightly off, which sets him back to some extent. His injuries have been a major story in his development.
Career Potential: Decent left-hander, when healthy.
