Scouting Report
Assets: 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.
Flaws: 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's unreliable.
Career Potential: Inconsistent but talented late-inning reliever.
