Scouting Report
: Lanky right-hander signed out of the independent American Association in March 2011. Throws from a 3/4 arm slot. Easy, balanced delivery with the ball loosely coming out of his hand. Fastball sits 93-95 mph. Creates sink by throwing downhill. Effective between the knees and thighs, but flattens out when elevated in the zone. Average command, but needs to improve carrying it over from outing to outing. Also features a solid-average 84-86 mph slider. At its best the pitch shows depth and bite, but he's inconsistent with the offering and at times it rolls to the plate, allowing batters to get a piece of it. It generates swings and misses when its on. Also mixes in a below-average 83-84 mph changeup. Profiles as an up-and-down middle reliever, with the potential to make major league impact as a middle reliever in peak seasons.
