Scouting Report

AssetsHis fastball and slider have good movement and help keep the ball on the ground. Throws strikes with consistency when on his game. Can be used as a closer or setup man.
FlawsBecause he's more crafty than dominant, he gives up a fair number of hits (and the occasional big inning)--making him a risky proposition for the ninth inning role.
Career potentialInconsistent late-inning reliever.
