Scouting Report

AssetsHas the ability to strike a lot of batters out. Displays poise and clutch ability in relief, with a shutdown mentality. Keeps the ball in the park.
FlawsMust keep his walks total low, as he tends to get wild from time to time. His wildness can linger for very long stretches, so he's unreliable.
Career potentialInconsistent but talented late-inning reliever.
