Scouting Report

AssetsHis wiry frame can deceive a lot of batters, especially from the right side of the plate, since they don't pick up the ball early at all. Also boasts the stuff to strike batters out consistently.
FlawsIssues with name fraud have derailed his big-league career to some extent. Serves up a few too many home runs, since he tends to give into hitters from time to time.
Career potentialSolid late-inning reliever with issues.
