Scouting Report

AssetsHas a wealth of experience for pitching at a high level, and a vast knowledge of the art of pitching. Displays plenty of poise and good control. Doesn't beat himself when on the bump.
FlawsDoesn't have overpowering stuff, so he can at times get hit hard if he isn't pinpoint with his control. Needs to keep the ball in the park better. Strikeouts aren't easy to get for him.
Career potentialSavvy veteran starter.
