Scouting Report
Strikes out batters and is capable of being a strong late-inning option in the big leagues. Pitches with a lot of mound presence and guile. Has bounce-back ability and resiliency. Gets into trouble by walking too many batters, so control is quite vital in helping him succeed (but is not always present at the big-league level). Injury issues can be a problem.
Long Range Potential: Quality, veteran late-inning reliever.
