He is better than a 7.66 ERA but he isn't a #1 or #2 type pitcher. He doesn't have a single dominate pitch.... though I guess he can hit 94 or so with his 4 seamer but the couple games I've saw him pitch he never threw it. I'd say he is a #3 or #4 on a good team with around 4.00-4.50 ERA and around 1.25-1.35 WHIP.
I think he is a little overrated, especially pitching in the AL East.
