Scouting Report

AssetsWill battle when on the mound and rarely give in to batters. Can be used as either a starter or reliever. Has the ideal pitchers' frame (6-3, 230 pounds).
FlawsToo many walks have always been an issue, so he must control the strike zone better and avoid the big inning. His strikeout/walk ratio is obviously an issue.
Career potentialJourneyman right-hander.
