Scouting Report

AssetsHad a work-horse mentality on the mound and could bear down in the clutch. Used a decent curveball as his main out-pitch. Was also a good leader on a pitching staff.
FlawsHis fastball was always somewhat straight and hittable. Threw too many strikes and didn't fool hitters enough. Also had trouble avoiding the big inning to be more successful.
Career potentialSavvy, but hittable right-hander and leader.
