Scouting Report

AssetsDisplays a lot of pitching savvy on the mound. Is extremely reliable and durable. Has a wicked curve that left-handed hitters especially have trouble with. Has converted to a bullpen role well.
FlawsAs a reliever, he isn't as good at getting right-handed batters out. Gave up too many hits as a starter, mainly because he usually lacked the velocity to blow batters away.
Career potentialSituational lefty.
