Scouting Report: Tall left-hander with filled-out frame. Smooth mechanics from a 3/4 arm slot. High leg kick. Heavily relises on his 93-95 mph four-seam fastball.  Below-average control. Also mixes in a low-80s slider. Needs to get it over the plate to stay effective. Has a high-80s show-me changeup that grades out as below-average.  Won two World Series with San Francisco, ended up in the indy leagues in 2018.  Bullpen depth arm has some back-end bullpen potential with tweaks to his breaking ball that include improved control.
