Scouting Report

AssetsHas plenty of mound presence. Throws many strikes and does so early in counts. Can be consistent when used in the ninth inning.
FlawsYears of heavy appearance totals can get the better of him in terms of injuries. Lefty bats still make him somewhat vulnerable on the mound.
Career potentialSavvy veteran late-inning reliever.
