Scouting Report: Hard-throwing reliever with good strikeout numbers. Velocity currently sits in the low-to-mid 90s, which is down from previous years. Also throws a mid-80s slider, which flashes plus at times. Has been a closer in the minors, and has the potential to be a late-inning reliever in the majors.
