Scouting Report

AssetsStrikes out batters and is capable of being a strong late-inning option in the bigs. Pitches with a lot of mound presence and guile.
FlawsGets into trouble by walking batters, so control is quite vital in helping him succeed (but isn't always present). Injury issues have been a problem.
Career potentialInconsistent but talented late-inning reliever.
