Scouting Report
Has proven to be a very successful closer at the minor-league level, and his stuff is quite lethal--leading to huge strikeout totals. Is confident in his overall ability. Doesn't have ideal size for a big-league pitcher (5-10, 210 pounds), so he must prove capable of maintaining his stamina (and avoiding injury) at the highest level.
Long Range Potential: Diminutive, decent reliever.
