Scouting Report

AssetsA live, high-90's fastball is his greatest asset, coupled with a nice slider to keep hitters honest. Is quite durable. Owns plenty of experience pitching in the late innings.
FlawsAt times, he tries to be too fine with his pitches and that leads to control issues and late-inning rallies against him. His meltdowns have become too frequent over time.
Career potentialVeteran reliever.
