Scouting Report

AssetsDurable, he throws a knuckleball that has extended his career. Is always willing to log a ton of innings, which helps a pitching staff tremendously. Can be dominant when on his game.
FlawsLike most knuckleballers, he can lack command of the pitch at times. Serves up too many home runs, so using him in crucial situations is always a very risky proposition.
Career potentialVeteran innings-eating knuckleballer.
