Scouting Report

AssetsHas a nasty strikeout repertoire including mid-90's heat, a knee-buckling curve and good changeup. A competitor on the mound, he doesn't give an inch.
FlawsHasn't shown he can avoid injuries in his career. Can sometimes lose his cool and composure on the mound. Will give up his share of dingers, too.
Career potentialSavvy veteran starter and clutch performer, when healthy.
