Scouting Report

AssetsHis out-pitch is a devastating splitter, which can be a dominant pitch. Displays an ability to close games in the minor leagues. Throws strikes consistently.
FlawsCan get hit hard because he's around the plate so much, so he needs to mix it up more. That would also make his splitter more effective.
Career potentialMiddle reliever with a little upside.
