Scouting Report
Assets: His slider could devastate both righties and lefties. Added a sinking fastball, some deception and a bulldog mentality whenever on the mound. Could rack up good strikeouts and was a leader. Was also a closer.
Flaws: Sometimes his abundant energy got in the way: he'd find himself too pumped up early on and get knocked around. Had problems with his command and got in homer trouble whenever he left his fastball up in the zone.
Career Potential: Versatile, work-horse right-hander.
