Scouting Report

AssetsHis massive frame and blazing fastball can intimidate batters. When on his game, he's cool as a cucumber in pressure situations.
FlawsLoses some effectiveness after pitching more than one inning, since his arsenal is somewhat limited. Has a little more trouble against left-handed hitters.
Career potentialSolid late-inning reliever.
