Scouting Report
Assets: Has a massive frame and a big arm, so he's capable of striking out plenty of batters. Appears to have found his big-league niche pitching out of the bullpen, after being groomed as a starter earlier in his career.
Flaws: Can have some control and command issues from time to time, so he needs to curb his number of walks and home runs allowed in order to maximize potential. His changeup is only an average big-league pitch.
Career Potential: Mammoth reliever with some upside.
