Scouting Report

AssetsHas the perfect mentality for a closer. Intimidates and challenges hitters with a moving fastball that's usually around the plate. Mixes in a sharp splitter. Thrives under pressure.
FlawsCould stand to be a little more crafty, instead of strictly relying on his power pitches. Sometimes he has trouble locating his off-speed stuff.
Career potentialExcellent closer.
