Scouting Report

AssetsChanges speeds, throws with good command and is almost always around the plate. Boasts a good sinker and slider. Can work on short rest and can go for multiple innings per outing.
FlawsStill needs to improve against left-handed hitters, who see his pitches well. Doesn't have a lot of strikeout ability, which limits his ability to dominate on the bump.
Career potentialResourceful and versatile reliever.
