Scouting Report

AssetsPuts his massive frame behind a fastball that can reach the high 90s, and is equally effective against hitters from both sides of the plate. Never gets rattled.
FlawsWill at times lose his composure, so saves can become a real adventure with him. While he gets out of trouble with aplomb, he makes life harder on himself than it needs to be.
Career potentialQuality veteran closer.
