Scouting Report

AssetsBrings a varied arsenal to the hill, highlighted by a fastball/splitter combination. All of his pitches have excellent movement. Was a starter but has adapted well to a role out of the 'pen.
FlawsThe great movement on his pitches can also be his downfall, since he too often loses command of the strike zone altogether. Injuries are a major issue late in his baseball career.
Career potentialSavvy veteran right-hander, when healthy.
