Scouting Report
Assets: Has an electric, mid-90's fastball and a nasty, hard slider. Can dominate when he gets on a roll. Generally keeps the ball around the plate. Can log plenty of innings.
Flaws: Is woefully inconsistent. His fastball can straighten out at times, and they often take it out of the park. Doesn't trust his off-speed stuff nearly enough.
Career Potential: Solid, inconsistent veteran right-hander.
