Scouting Report
Assets: Has three main pitches that he throws quite effectively: A mid-90's fastball, changeup and a dizzying curve that is his main strikeout pitch. Can dominate a lineup when on his game.
Flaws: Bases on balls are his biggest issue. He also has a tendency to lose his focus and concentration. Can also be somewhat injury-riddled, which hinders his value slightly.
Career Potential: Inconsistent but talented veteran right-hander.
