Scouting Report
: Savvy right-hander has been on the decline in recent years. Usually keeps his pitches down and throws strikes. Has a good sinker-slider approach to pitching. Doesn't pitch inside enough, in particular against left-handers, which leads to struggles. Injuries and durability are issues, since he struggles to stay sharp beyond the sixth inning.
