Scouting Report

Finally lived up to potential in 2004 and 2005. 93-95 mph 4 seam fastball—91-93 two seamer than runs into right-handed batters. Picture perfect 12-6 curveball that locks hitters hands and causes hitters to chase. Throws a mid-80's cutter that bores in on left-handers and then drops off to table with late action. Great command of the strike-zone. Can work deep into games and seems to get better as the game progresses.
