Scouting Report

AssetsHas a huge pitchers' frame (6-4, 235 pounds) and the ideal demeanor for a late-inning reliever--which is the role that allowed him to find his niche in the bigs. His slider is top-notch.
FlawsGets into trouble when he starts losing the location of the strike zone. On occasion, he becomes too predictable--and hittable--since his repertoire isn't very deep or versatile.
Career potentialQuality veteran late-inning reliever.
