Scouting Report

AssetsHas a resilient arm. Can crank his fastball in the mid 90s. When he gets ahead in the count, he's extremely effective. Can start or relieve.
FlawsStruggles the more teams see him. His quality fastball lacks movement, which can lead to a lot of home runs against him. Is more of a thrower than pitcher.
Career potentialVersatile journeyman right-hander.
