Scouting Report
Assets: Is a work horse starter with tremendous durability and stamina. His arsenal includes a great change-up and solid curve. Loves to challenge hitters and throws a lot of strikes. Always has a great pickoff move at first base.
Flaws: Can at times be too much around the plate, leading to a high hit counts against him. Must find a way to keep the ball in the park more often. Tends to rely too much on his change-up. Right-handed batters hit him pretty well.
Career Potential: Quality workhorse starter.
