Strengths: Livingston is in control on the mound and even when his pitches aren't at their best and he's getting touched up, he never loses that. His command is very good and he rarely walks batters. Few bats, even in the big leagues, will be able to intimidate him in any fashion. He knows how to pitch and understands how to use his pitches to get outs. He's as durable as pitchers get and is very, very consistent.
Weaknesses: The questions surrounding Livingston are all about his stuff. Can he win in the majors with an 83-86 mph fastball? Yes, he can, though it may take him some time to adjust to the league, as it did in Triple-A. His inexperience won't hurt him as much as most, since he's always had to think his way through a start seven innings at a time.
Tools - Now/Future
Curve Ball: 55/60+
Staying Power: 60/65
Overall Future Potential: 58
Livingston's delivery can still be adjusted to get more out of his fastball, and his 200-pound frame can certainly handle the extra effort. He'll cut his fastball in on right-handers and baffle left-handers with a change.
