Scouting Report
Assets: Puts his massive frame behind a fastball that can reach the high 90s, and is equally effective against hitters from both sides of the plate. Never gets rattled.
Flaws: Will at times lose his composure, so saves can become a real adventure with him. While he gets out of trouble with aplomb, he makes life harder on himself than it needs to be.
Career Potential: Veteran reliever.
