Scouting Report
Assets: An intense pitcher, he can crank his sinking heat in the mid-90's with good command. Has enough of an arsenal to strike batters out regularly, but he's also a control artist when on his game.
Flaws: Injuries are now a big issue for him. Otherwise, his main weakness is the high number of home runs he allows, since his pitches tend to elevate. He also can be a bit too hittable at times.
Career Potential: Solid veteran right-hander, when healthy.
