Scouting Report

AssetsWas good at getting hitters to beat the ball into the ground and rarely over the fence, thanks to his sinker. Was also reliable and durable as a starter or reliever.
FlawsGave up way too many hits and his strikeout/walk ratio wasn't great. Had a lot of trouble keeping runners honest and was a little weaker from the stretch position.
Career potentialQuality sinkerball specialist.
