Scouting Report
Assets: Has incredible size (6-10, 255 pounds) and the ability to put up quality innings, when healthy. Partly due to his size, he can intimidate with his fastball. Also adds a solid curveball and decent change-up to the mix.
Flaws: Injuries and a lack of stamina are the main concern. Base-runners usually run wild against him. The command of his curve and change-up aren't always where he needs it to be. As a result, walks are an issue for him.
Career Potential: Savvy veteran right-hander, when healthy.
