Scouting Report

AssetsCan crank a fastball into the mid-90s and adds a quality slider and good change-up. He's a nightmare for right-handed hitters. Can put out fires with runners on.
FlawsCan still be a little inconsistent at times. Will also struggle to get the first pitch over for a strike on occasion. Still lacks a little durability and has a lengthy injury history.
Career potentialCapable late-inning reliever, when healthy.
