Scouting Report
Owns the drive and mentality of a true ace. Has a great pitchers' frame and impressive strikeout ability, especially due to a good fastball and impressive slow curve. Can dominate on the hill. When he gets into trouble, it is because he loses command of the strike zone and has difficulty repeating his delivery. Also can be slowed by injury, including troublesome back issues.
Long Range Potential: Elite left-handed starter.
