  Scouting Report & Links      
         
  Physical Description: Medium-to-large frame. Filled-out upper half, has some projection left in lower half. 

Mechanics: Arduous, effortful low 3/4 delivery. Overuses upper body, could stand to get more torque from his legs. Falls to the first base side. Mediocre control.

Fastball: 93-95 mph four-seamer, uses the pitch about 50% of the time. Not much movement on the pitch. Also throws a 92-94 mph sinker which induces a lot of swings and misses.

Slider: 80-83 mph. Sweeping 10-to-4 movement.

Changeup: 82-86 mph. Firm pitch with armside run and some sink.
  Career Notes: High profile July 2 signign for Colorado in 2011. Released in May 2015 and signed by Arizona in November 2015. Got cups of coffee with Arizona in 2019 and 2020. Missed part of 2019 with a fractured bone in his foot. Claimed off waivers by Boston in November 2020.

Summation: Emergency up-and-down reliever.
