Scouting Report
: Reliever and sometimes closer Danny Kolb has had a roller coaster career.  Struggled with injuries and occasional control problems.  Fastball once sat in the high 90s, now generally sits around 92 mph.   Leaves it up in the zone too much.  His main pitch is a low 90s sinker, which historically resulted in a high groundball ratio, but not in recent seasons.    Showed flashes of brilliance in 2004 with Milwaukee, but hasn't been all that impressive since.
