Scouting Report

AssetsUses a good sinker with a three-quarter delivery that can be a real handful for most left-handed batters. Possesses the ability to strike batters out when he needs it most. Usually comes out of the 'pen throwing strikes.
FlawsWill occasionally have control problems that can linger, mainly due to mechanical issues in his delivery. Lacks a little stamina and the repertoire to face a lot of hitters per appearance.
Career potentialJourneyman situational lefty.
