Scouting Report
A sinker-slider type, he boasts a solid frame and pretty good velocity on his fastball (though his slider is his best out-pitch). Can be used in the ninth inning at lower levels. Must avoid walking too many hitters in order to become an effective big-league reliever over the long haul. Also needs to avoid injury down the road (he throws across his body).
Long Range Potential: Decent reliever.
