Scouting Report
Assets: Owns an intimidating curveball that makes left-handed hitters' knees buckle. Mixes his pitches with aplomb and can set batters up well. Is durable and competitive.
Flaws: Has lost some zip on his fastball, which is a recipe for disaster for a pitcher that likes to pitch up in the zone. Struggles with his command and pitch-to-pitch consistency.
Career Potential: Veteran starter in decline.
