Scouting Report

AssetsHis nasty slider baffled right-handed hitters and he generally had good command over all of his pitches. Could also strike batters out in key spots.
FlawsDidn't mix things up enough, so he was exposed on the mound if out there for too long per appearance. With runners on base, he could get a little distracted.
Career potentialSolid reliever.
