Scouting Report
Has the ability to rack up both strikeouts and saves, at least at lower levels. Displays a good arm. His lanky frame offers some deception in his delivery. At times, he struggles in critical situations at the highest level and is susceptible to the big inning. Could also stand to add more bulk for better stamina.
Long Range Potential: Journeyman reliever.
