Would you deal him.
Or
Do you think he'll break out of this slump.

I think 60-70% of the people of this board think he'll eventually break out and start hitting hard. I'm one of them. This is why I traded for him a couple of weeks ago.

He's bound to be out for a time with back stiffness over the course of the season, but when he does hit, it should be worth the wait.

In terms of dealing, it's really based on what you think you can get for him. I got him for pretty cheap. You can wait until he starts hitting and then shop him around if you're concerned and get something for him that's a bit more premium.
