Valverde has been great. He has a 2.82 ERA , 1.23 WHIP and 55 Ks in 44+ innings for the year.
Also over the last month he has been unhittable with a 0.61 ERA, 0.89 WHIP, and 22 Ks in 14+ innings.
If anyone is going to be closing in Arizona this is the guy. Why force Lyon back into the role when Valverde is pitching lights out?
