Scouting Report
Assets: His slider can devastate both righties and lefties. Adds a sinking fastball, some deception and a bulldog mentality when on the mound. Can rack up good strikeout totals when on his game. Adds some leadership qualities.
Flaws: Sometimes his abundant energy gets in the way; he'll find himself too pumped up early on and get knocked around. Has problems with his command and gets in homer trouble when he leaves his fastball up in the zone.
Career Potential: Veteran right-hander in decline.
