Scouting Report
Assets: Kept hitters off balance with a smooth yet explosive delivery, with natural movement on his pitches. Was highly confident throwing his change-up. Usually didn't get rattled, even when he didn't have good stuff.
Flaws: Health was always a massive issue, and especially later in his career he was anything but durable or reliable. Suffered some command problems against left-handed hitters, and he usually paid for it.
Career Potential: Savvy, durable but limited starting pitcher.
