Scouting Report
Will always give maximum effort when on the bump. Is never afraid to challenge hitters, and will often go upstairs on hitters to get outs. Can excel when up against left-handed batters. At the big-league level, he was a bit too hittable as a starter and did not have a go-to strikeout pitch, so his move to the bullpen is permanent. Gets into trouble when his pitches elevate.
Long Range Potential: Veteran left-handed reliever.
