Scouting Report
Assets: Has the perfect mentality for a closer. Intimidates and challenges hitters with a moving fastball that's usually around the plate. Mixes in a sharp splitter. Thrives under pressure.
Flaws: Could stand to be a little more crafty, instead of strictly relying on his power pitches. Sometimes he has trouble locating his off-speed stuff. Struggles whenever in low-pressure innings.
Career Potential: Veteran closer.
