Scouting Report
A pure power pitcher, he relied on a 95-plus m.p.h. heater in every situation. He seldom suffered from fatigue. Had no other effective pitch to accompany his fastball. When he did throw his breaking stuff it was often wild and out of the strike zone.
Long Range Potential: Decent, hard-throwing reliever.
