Scouting Report
Has an excellent heater and his stuff is particularly nasty against right-handed hitters. His changeup has become a true out pitch. Can either set up or close in MLB, as need be, and is quite durable. Would be more effective if he wasted a few more pitches. Tends to lose effectiveness with overuse over the course of the 162-game schedule. His personality can rub people the wrong way.
Long Range Potential: Veteran reliever.
