Scouting Report

AssetsHis slider just isn't fair to hitters and his nasty heater sits in the mid-90's. When he gets on a roll, he is an invaluable man out of the bullpen.
FlawsInjuries are an issue with him, so managers must exercise caution with his workload. His changeup is mediocre and he can struggle with runners on base.
Career potentialSolid late-inning reliever, when healthy.
