Scouting Report

AssetsCan eat up innings in his sleep. Is able to keep his pitches down and the ball in the park by inducing ground balls. Keeps runners close and also fields his position very well. Is a good athlete in general who can hit a little too.
FlawsIs constantly pitching on the edge, since he surrenders too many hits and too many free passes. Base-runners seem to preoccupy him too much. Doesn't have enough of an arsenal to strike a lot of batters out.
Career potentialVeteran innings-eating starter.
