Scouting Report
Assets: Is good at pitching to contact and displays impressive command of his arsenal. Has an ideal pitchers' frame. Can also finish what he starts when on top of his game.
Flaws: Is not a true strikeout pitcher, so he gives up a few too many hits and serves up a few too many long balls. So, he needs to put away hitters earlier in the count.
Career Potential: Veteran, innings-eating starter.
