Scouting Report:  Left-handed pitcher who has filled out well over the last several years. Fastball sits 91-93 mph. Throws both two-seam and four-seam varieties. Four-seamer can top out at 94 mph when working out of bullpen. Two-seamer shows late arm-side run. Average-to-solid-average fastball command. Struggles to consistently hit spots and control heater in stretches. Can land too open during delivery, which hinders command and reduces ability to throw downhill. Deceptive 3/4 delivery, as hitters don't pick up the ball until late, causing his fastball to look a little faster. Plus 79-83 mph changeup. Can throw with arm-side fade or turnover for screwball action. Generates swings-and-misses. Out pitch when ahead in the count. Has trust to throw at any point in sequences. 76-79 mph curveball can be inconsistent, but has been improving in creating snap. Improved feel has increased effectiveness against left-handed batters. Can hang pitch too much. At best when keeping fastball in lower tier of strike zone. Needs improvement being more efficient with pitch count to go deeper into games and stick long-term as a starter. Projects as a back-of-the-rotation starter at the major-league level.
