Scouting Report

AssetsA true gamer, he both started and relieved effectively. Displayed solid ability to strike batters out, especially as a reliever.
FlawsStruggled significantly with injuries (especially elbow problems). A tad too hittable, he got into trouble by giving up too many long balls. Was probably better suited to relief duty due to questionable stamina.
Career potentialVersatile right-hander.
