Scouting Report: Lefty strikeout artist with a history if control issues. Easy three-quarter delivery with nice deception.  Fastball sits between 86-90 mph  with decent movement.  Has topped out at 94 mph in the past. Above average slider sits around 78 mph. Developing changeup.  Needs to work on maintaining his delivery.  Very good groundball splits, also some impressive stats against lefties.
