Scouting Report
Assets: Has a great sinker/slider combo, which makes his mid-90's fastball quite effective. Can at times be completely baffling to hitters, who often swing and miss at his offerings.
Flaws: Needs extra rest at times to be most effective as a reliever, so he could stand to improve his stamina for the late innings. Injuries have also been a factor with him.
Career Potential: Solid late-inning reliever.
