Scouting Report
Assets: Has a live arm and plenty of strikeout ability. Is unafraid of challenging batters and displays the ideal demeanor of a late-inning reliever. Can intimidate on the hill.
Flaws: Whenever he gets into major hot water late in ball games, it is almost always because he loses command of his pitches and starts walking too many batters.
Career Potential: Elite, late-inning reliever.
