When he's on he arguably has the best stuff on the staff. He just can't put it all together for longer than a game or two.

I see him as a late guy in the bullpen and if he can improve his control he could be a closer.

Just like David Hernandez he will hit mid 90s in a short stint. Aside from his inability to get out of an inning in less than 20 pitches he has never been in proper shape. Get him condition and keep him to two innings or less and he might be productive.
