Areas to improve upon
This one is very obvious. His strikeout numbers were impressive but as a lefty he needs to improve his numbers against lefties going forward.
He had outstanding numbers against righties but he’s primary job will always be getting lefties out. His impressive ability to strike out batters will keep him around, but to move into a more important role in the bullpen he will have to be able to get more consistent.
With tough lefty hitters throughout the league, most notably Daniel Murphy and Bryce Harper in Washington, this will be important going forward.
