Scouting Report

AssetsChanges speeds and uses good command to get tons of groundball outs. His stuff is nasty against right-handed hitters, mainly because of his quirky, short-armed delivery.
FlawsUnfortunately, there's a huge drop-off in his ability to pitch effectively against left-handed hitters, who can at times hammer him. Is also injury-prone and in decline overall.
Career potentialVeteran journeyman reliever.
