Scouting Report
Assets: The big righty can still pop the radar gun on occasion with a quick, compact delivery, while also featuring devastating off-speed stuff. Eats up innings and saves his best for crunch time.
Flaws: Surrenders a few too many homers. Also, his fastball tends to straighten out a bit too much from time to time. His heavy workload is starting to affect him, as he's not nearly as dominant as he used to be.
Career Potential: Veteran, big-game workhorse starter.
