Scouting Report
Has the ability to strike a lot of batters out. Displays poise and clutch ability in relief, with a shutdown mentality. Keeps the ball in the park. Must keep his walks total low, as he tends to get wild from time to time. His wildness can linger for very long stretches, so he is unreliable.
Long Range Potential: Veteran reliever.
