Scouting Report

AssetsCould always be a great change of pace in the rotation thanks to his fluttering knuckleball; was a master of that pitch. Could also eat up innings and pitch on short rest. Was a great team player and also versatile.
FlawsIn his 40's, he became increasingly injury-prone. Was streaky: his fastball wasn't quite good enough to keep batters from sitting on the knuckler, which could be extremely unpredictable. Could also get run on a lot.
Career potentialWorkhorse knuckleball specialist.
