Scouting Report

AssetsHad one of the best pick-off moves in the history of the game. Owned great movement on his pitches, especially his cutter that moved in on righties. Didn't give in to batters and usually saved his best for the postseason.
FlawsAllowed a few too many base-runners overall, which hurt his overall effectiveness and could possibly prevent him from reaching the Hall of Fame. Wasn't really a dominant starter and never was. Also wasn't as motivated late in his career.
Career potentialClutch performer and crafty left-hander.
