Scouting Report
: Journeyman right-hander. His calling card is his impeccable command. Throws a good curveball and change-up. Usually pitches to contact. Is versatile. When he's too fine with his command, he gets hit hard. And that flaw is exacerbated by his mediocre fastball. Doesn't strike out enough hitters.
