Majors: 12.2IP 25H 22R 20ER 3HR 10BB 11K's

I think he has a chance to improve upon his major league numbers this time around :*)

But seriously this guy is volatile as hell. And whats weird, he was just placed on the DL with elbow problems a couple days ago

He has good stuff, his biggest problem though is his control. This year in AAA he has given up 72 walks in just 120 innings, which is really bad obviously. In the minors he can get away with it due to the stuff he has, but in the majors he will put to many on base and leave to many hittable pitches that in the majors won't be missed.

agreed, but he can probably learn better from pitching in the majors at this point than in AAA don't you think? And he has to be better than John Rheinecker right? :-o
Are you interested in joining a 28 teams dynasty league? If so, PM me.
