Scouting Report
Has good, sinking action on a fastball that can hit the mid-90's, as well as a great overhand curve, decent changeup and slider. Can dominate when on the bump and he's also a workhorse. Does not always have great command of his breaking stuff, which gets him into trouble. Left-handed hitters do better against him than righties, in general. Injuries have been a factor.
Long Range Potential: Great, versatile veteran right-hander, when healthy.
