Scouting Report

AssetsPitches quickly, which always keeps his defenders sharp. Has a decent sinking fastball, a bulldog mentality and loads of perseverance. Is rather crafty.
FlawsIs injury-prone and a little undersized. His fastball is mediocre. Doesn't have a dominant strikeout pitch, so he relies too heavily on his defense.
Career potentialGutsy, versatile right-hander, if healthy.
