Supposedly healthy. Will be the Yanks 5th if he remains so. As to what to expect, impossible to guess. All depends on how well/fast he recovers from the surgery wrt the quality of his stuff. Could be very good, could be worthless. Will no mor ein Spring Training, which I know does not help if you are drafting now.

Really tough call coming off the surgery. I wouldn't want to bank on him, but he still could be serviceable. I probably wouldn't risk it though.
Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.
Yes doctor, there will be blood.....

I agree and he will probably go undrafted in average leagues so u could possibably pick him up in free agent pool.

he's got to be good for 14 wins and a low 4 era. Don't count on him for many strikeouts though.

A late round flier or possible free-agent pickup is where I see him as of right now.

Didn't he win 20 2 years ago for a terrible Cubs team? I think that he's better then he's ever been given credit for. I'm with Trevisc on this one. I think that Lieber is coming back in a big way.

I won't draft him, but I will be watching him closely. Any sign of quality, and I would take a flier on him right away.

I have him penciled in on my draft sheets and may very well take a chance with him on my last pick if he is still there.
