Scouting Report

AssetsThrows tons and tons of strikes. Has a wealth of experience and savvy. Is used to pressure situations, making him a great candidate to be used as a late-inning reliever.
FlawsDoesn't have ideal size for a pitcher, so he can break down physically. Is also sometimes around the strike zone a bit too much--he doesn't waste enough pitches.
Career potentialQuality veteran reliever.
