Scouting Report
Assets: Was most definitely a big-game pitcher who saved his best for the postseason. Had a nasty strikeout repertoire including mid-90's heat, a knee-buckling curve and good changeup. A fiery competitor, he didn't give an inch.
Flaws: Never really showed he could avoid injuries throughout his career, which negated some of his exploits. Could sometimes lose his cool and composure when on the mound. Would also give up his share of dingers, too.
Career Potential: Talented, savvy starter and clutch performer, when healthy.
