Scouting Report
Is a natural reliever with good size (6-2, 235 pounds) and very good strikeout ability at the minor-league level. Is comfortable pitching in the late innings (even as a closer) in the minors. Must prove capable of pitching with the game on the line in Major League Baseball. Does not have an expansive arsenal, so he is not likely to be a starting pitching candidate in MLB.
Long Range Potential: Talented reliever with a little upside.
