Scouting Report
Assets: Brought good command to the mound, especially of his off-speed pitches. Never gave into batters--ever. Generally had endurance over a season and was able to log a boatload of innings.
Flaws: Didn't have a dominant pitch, so he was somewhat limited in striking batters out. Could be too hittable and served up too many gopher balls. Didn't always keep his weight in check.
Career Potential: Versatile veteran right-hander.
