He's not going to be replaced. Can he keep this up? No, but he's worth a roster spot. He's a highly touted prospect who could put it together at any time.

He didn't pitch well at all tonight so while he's worth picking up I wouldn't be trading for him or anything.

He may have been a highly touted prospect before he played any pro ball, but he really hasn't done much in the minors or majors until this season.

Pitcher

I didn't see the game but.......that looks like a pretty good line to me.

Injuries have slowed him down and taken him off most peoples radar despite having been formerly a highly touted prospect.

His career K - BB ratio is better than 2-1 going into this season after 205 total INN pitched in the majors.

So far he is slightly better than a 3-1 ratio with 23K's and 7BB's so far this year.

He is definately worth picking up and is a fine 2 start pitcher next week on the road against LA and SanDiego.

Hed definitely be a great pickup right now but Im not so sure if hell keep this up all year. But yes, do ride his hot streak until he starts to cool off. He still does have some potential though to be a top 30 or 35 pitcher throughout the season or sometime in the near future.
