Scouting Report

AssetsHas an excellent slider, and the ability to pitch at different arm angles--which makes him very deceptive. Can pitch more than one inning per outing, which helps keep a staff fresh. Can also pitch on little rest.
FlawsToo often, he can't get his first pitch over for strikes, which usually gets him into trouble. Will also struggle with his command from time to time. Could stand to simplify his approach a bit.
Career potentialJourneyman reliever.
