Scouting Report
Has the funky delivery from the right side that is most effective against right-handed batters, since it is deceptive with good velocity. Also boasts a good slider. Unfortunately, he does not have great stuff against left-handed batters. Also has control issues that occasionally limit his effectiveness from time to time.
Long Range Potential: Veteran, late-inning reliever.
