Scouting Report

AssetsCan consistently pump his fastball into the mid-90's, even at an advanced age. Can handle a fairly heavy workload and is effective in the late innings.
FlawsHis fastball is too straight, so hitters often tee off on him--especially lefty bats. Control can also be an issue with him. Isn't an ideal closer, as a result.
Career potentialVeteran late-inning reliever.
