Scouting Report

AssetsOwns a breaking ball that acts as his bread-and-butter pitch. Is a battler who doesn't let adversity get to him. Can close, if necessary.
FlawsDoesn't have overpowering stuff, so he runs into trouble when he loses command of his fastball--which he uses to set batters up. Is a little erratic.
Career potentialInconsistent late-inning reliever.
