Scouting Report

AssetsIs a true workhorse with an ideal pitchers' frame. Can finish what he starts. Throws a great sinking fastball in the mid-90's. Is durable, smart and a true professional.
FlawsDoesn't always do a good job of getting ahead in the count, which can lead to a relatively high walks total. Sometimes, he will surrender too many long balls.
Career potentialExcellent innings-eating starter.
