Scouting Report

AssetsWhen he's on, he gets ahead in the count and changes speeds well. In tight situations with runners in scoring position, he knows how to bear down and get the job done. Can be used as a reliever or starter.
FlawsCan struggle to hold runners on, so they tend to run freely against him. Often, when he falls behind, he gives in to hitters and gets knocked around. Could stand to improve his strikeout/walk ratio.
Career potentialSavvy and versatile veteran right-hander.
