Scouting Report

AssetsWorks well with runners in scoring position. Can be used as a situational lefty or in a setup role. Has a low-90s fastball, backed up by a strong change-up and curve.
FlawsHe tends to walk a few too many batters and could stand to challenge more hitters. Left-handed hitters are a bit too successful against him, since getting them out is a big part of his job.
Career potentialVeteran lefty reliever.
