Scouting Report

AssetsGenerates nasty movement of his high-90s fastball from the left side, which makes him nearly unhittable against lefty bats when he's on. If needed, he can start or pitch in short relief.
FlawsInjuries have been a big problem throughout his career. Command has also been a major issue, as it's prevented him from becoming a bigger factor on a pitching staff.
Career potentialVersatile late-inning lefty, when healthy.
