Scouting Report

AssetsOne of the game's great work horses, he doesn't fatigue much late in the game. Logs a lot of innings, pitches to contact and can lead a staff. Is successful throwing an array of off-speed pitches.
FlawsWhen he loses focus, he gets knocked around for big innings. That's due to less-than-stellar velocity and average stuff. At times, he can take a while to regain his focus when on the mound.
Career potentialVeteran innings-eating left-hander.
