Scouting Report

AssetsCan occasionally reach triple digits on the radar gun with his fastball. Also boasts the off-speed pitches to be a dominant strikeout pitcher out of the 'pen.
FlawsThe long ball has been a big problem, especially in critical spots, throughout his career. Left-handed hitters hit him a little too well. He's also a little fragile.
Career potentialInconsistent veteran power reliever.
