Scouting Report: Lefty starter with good pitchability. Fastball sits in the low-90s. Good changeup. Curveball flashes plus at times versus lefties. It is on the harder side, and can be slurvey at times. Had an excellent 2013 season, but has struggled with homeruns this season in the PCL. Very good numbers against lefties, mainly due to his curve. Projects as a back-of-the-rotation starter or reliever.
