He was traded to Texas today. What do you think of his value?

If anything, it goes down because of the smaller park and the AL hitting. But, he might win a few more games (Not much more).

he has a much better offense to support him in Texas though. I'd guess he would be average, if not slightly above average.

His own teams offense wont help him keep his ERA down. There's no way a move to the AL could help any pitcher.

I think the better question here is if Kip Wells can find his form from 3 years ago...highly doubtful though, especially coming off a long stay on the DL.

5 innings 1 run today.

but he didnt look very good to me and had a lot of baserunners.

i certianly think he will help the rangers considering rheinecker was getting the starts before, but i wouldnt bet on him for fantasy.

Yeah, I think he's one of those guys that are more valuable in real life that for fantasy. However I think he's a very viable option for people that are punting era/whip in a h2h league. He'll at least give you a decent shot at a win with the Rangers offense behind him.
