  Scouting Report & Links      
         
  Physical Description: Filled-out left-hander with a good pitcher's frame.

Mechanics: High leg kick into a high 3/4 delivery. Short stride. Follow-through has too much recoil. Below-average control and command.

Fastball: 90-91 mph. Fringe-average pitch. Also mixes in an 88-90 mph sinker.

Slider: 80-83 mph. Fringe-average pitch.


 

  Career Notes: Moved quickly through Giant's system after being drafted in 2010. Really struggled in limited major league time in 2013-14. Scrapped his curveball and changeup in 2014. Has spent much of his time as high minors depth sicne that time.

Summation: Triple-A depth and an emergency spot starter that could clear through waivers on the way back down.

Note: This page will be updated with a scouting report after the scouting team has seen the player in person.
