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.
