Scouting Report

AssetsOwns a solid arsenal featuring a low-90's fastball, splitter, slider and changeup. He's tough on right-handed hitters but holds his own against lefties, too. Boasts a rubber arm, so he can pitch a lot.
FlawsCan give up the long ball a little too often, since he has trouble keeping the ball down at times. Can sometimes be around the strike zone too much, without enough wasted pitches.
Career potentialSolid veteran reliever.
