Scouting Report

AssetsThrows plenty of strikes and gets ahead in the count effectively. Has good command and mound presence. Induces plenty of groundball outs and can be effective pitching on consecutive days.
FlawsWhen he relies exclusively on his fastball too much, he gets into trouble. At times, he can throw too many strikes and become predictable and too hittable. Doesn't strike enough batters out.
Career potentialSolid reliever.
