Scouting Report

AssetsCan be overpowering with his good stuff and the makeup for a late-inning relief role. Is at his best when he's limited to one inning of work, so he holds nothing back.
FlawsWill have a few brain cramps from time to time, in terms of pitch location, which can lead to a bad inning against him. May be exposed if on the mound for too long in an outing.
Career potentialVeteran late-inning reliever.
