Scouting Report
: Average 89-93 mph fastball with a power 82 mph breaking curve and a pretty good changeup.  Good knowledge of pitching.  Missed most of 2002 season after an ATV accident, from which he took a couple years to recover fully.  Great preparation skills.  Throws off-speed pitches for strikes, often at unexpected counts.  Pounds the strike zone with great command, doesn't walk many batters.  Works quickly on the mound.  Similar style to Mike Mussina. Converted to a reliever in 2007 where he demonstrated some very good success.
