Scouting Report
Assets: Has a tremendous frame and can either start or relieve at the big-league level. Is at his best when pitching to contact. Uses a good slider as his main out-pitch.
Flaws: Doesn't always command his secondary pitches well enough. Also struggles with the long ball. Has a tendency to serve up the big inning. Injuries are now a problem.
Career Potential: Versatile right-hander, when healthy.
