Scouting Report
Is a terrific talent with a projectable frame, deceptive delivery and quality arsenal. His fastball shows great movement and his delivery helps him keep both batters and runners honest. Has trouble repeating his delivery, and he generally lacks consistency. Needs to continue to work on improving both his changeup and slider in order to maximize output as a starter in MLB.
Long Range Potential: Talented left-hander with big upside.
