Scouting Report

AssetsHas plenty of swing-and-miss ability with his pitches, especially due to his great change-up. He's also quite adept at closing games in the minors.
FlawsDoesn't have ideal size for a big-league pitcher, so stamina and endurance are factors in his case. Needs to fend off the big-league jitters.
Career potentialSolid reliever with a little upside.
