Scouting Report
: One of the best pure sinkerballers in the majors over the last decade. However, since 2009 he has battled injury problems and ineffectiveness, including a broken right index finger in spring training in 2011 that kept him from pitching until June. His nasty sinker keeps the ball on the ground consistently. Has always had below-average swing-and-miss rates. His strikeout rates are also typically well below-average.
