Called up yesterday from AAA ... Was terrible with the Rangers last year but seems to have gotten better. Led the PCL in wins.

I would not add him right now. He's had no runs against him, but he's allowed 2 walks in 5 innings and has thrown 71 pitches through 5, which is always a red flag as far as I'm concerned.

You are throwing up a red flag on his first 71 major league pitches?

71 pitches through 5 isn't bad. 14.2 pitches per inning? Not bad at all. I like what I see so far, but I'm going to wait and see at least one more start before I go grab him.
Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.

4 H, 2 BB, 0 ER, 6 K through 7 IP isn't too shabby

Heh, I guess I am being a little too careful (though I must point out those aren't his first major league pitches -- last year with Texas he had a 12.27 ERA in 14.2 IP). But I've seen too many Fopperts and Hardens this year to go gaga over the next big thing at playoff time, especially when this guy isn't a real blue-chip prospect in the first place.

If it were any time in the first-half of the season, I'd jump and grab him. I'm just hesitant to throw a rookie in my lineup when I'm in the final stretch. I need to see one more start before I would feel like I could take that risk. That said, he'll probably be gone tomorrow morning in my league. SPs don't last real long.

Me, too but that has more to do with him not being in Yahoo yet. :-D
