Scouting Report
Assets: Uses deception and a side-arm delivery to get batters out. Has a very good pitchers' frame. Appears to have found his niche as a reliever. Is very resilient and can pitch on consecutive days.
Flaws: Isn't overpowering, so he must rely on his defense a little more than a manager wants from relievers in crucial situations. Lacks a dominant pitch, especially against left-handed batters.
Career Potential: Solid, crafty reliever.
