Scouting Report

AssetsHas a good sinker, which he throws with consistency for strikes and can induce a lot of groundball outs. Is capable of closing out games at lower levels.
FlawsCan be a bit too hittable when his sinker doesn't sink. Must also refine his slider, which can be a very good out-pitch but isn't thrown with enough consistency.
Career potentialDecent reliever with some upside.
