Scouting Report

AssetsHas a rubber arm and the ability to be used in virtually any pitching role. Is difficult to hit against and can rack up the strikeouts (especially when used as a reliever).
FlawsHas been plagued by a lack of consistency in the big leagues, which could explain why he switches roles so often. Can get in trouble because of the big inning.
Career potentialVersatile right-hander.
