Scouting Report
Assets: Brings good command to the mound, especially with his off-speed pitches. Very rarely does he give into batters. Generally displays endurance. Can be a starter, a short or long reliever, as necessary, in MLB.
Flaws: As a starter, he doesn't have a truly dominant pitch and is somewhat limited in terms of striking batters out. Can be too hittable and serves up too many gopher balls. Has trouble keeping his weight in check.
Career Potential: Versatile veteran right-hander.
