He has quietly put together a great season.

15 W, 143 K, 3.52 ERA, 1.30 WHIP, 184 IP, 68 BB.

What do you expect from him next year? 27 year old LHP and the Brewers are getting better.

I wouldn't be surprised if he put the same numbers as this year, the 15 wins are pretty much from him getting tons of run support but he has thrown a lot of quality starts. I own him in my keeper but unfortunately won't be keeping him since I can only keep a few, hes definitely a guy Ill be targeting in drafts next year.

He also has had a bit of a problem with the longball. If you're lucky, he may be mediocre. I won't be wasting a pick on him.

oh, i dunno. he's certainly not the next big thing, and this year's numbers are probably about his ceiling, but that doesn't mean i'll avoid him next year. he was an excellent ww pickup this year, and i'd take him after the 15-20th round depending on league size.

I'm surprised he's done so well late in the season and am optimistic about his future. I'll be looking forward to snagging him late in drafts next year. Good pick to talk about!

VORP 35.2 (Brett Meyers 38.6, AJ Burnett 34.9)

Runs Prevented 10.6 (Brandon Webb 10.8, AJ Burnett 9.0)

RA+ 1.13 (Livan Hernandez 1.13, Brandon Webb 1.12)

On the negative he has faced about the weakest batters any SP has this year:

Averages of batters faced

AVG .256
OBP .319
SLG .404

Compare that to say Dan Haren who is on the opposite end of that spectrum

AVG .267
OBP .331
SLG .427
