Scouting Report

AssetsHad great size and brought tons of heat behind it. Was good at keeping runners close at first base and excelled when pitching in pressure situations. Could dominate lefty bats.
FlawsLost command of his pitches on occasion, and struggled as a result. Was also prone to surrendering a few too many hits to right-handed batters. Lost his desire to play at the end.
Career potentialSolid late-inning lefty.
