Scouting Report

AssetsHas a mid-90s fastball that looks even faster because of his 6-11, 290-pound frame. Is perfectly suited to late-inning relief due to his intimidating presence and stuff on the mound.
FlawsDoesn't dominate as much as he should, partly because he lacks consistency. A lack of stamina is also still an issue. Must continue to work on his approach against left-handed hitters.
Career potentialIntimidating but inconsistent late-inning reliever.
