Many are comparing him to Brad Radke. He is a control pitcher (possibly the best in the minors) and should give the Twins a chance to win, which is more then can be said of either Ortiz or Ponson. He should put up modest numbers in the bigs. He doesn't have any dominant pitches so his strikeout numbers will be mediocre but his ERA and WHIP should be solid.
He's a decent option if you're in either a very deep mixed league or an AL only league. Other then that, your best bet would be to give him a couple of starts and wait and see how he pans out before you go after him yourself.
Overall, he doesn't have a ton of potential of some other up and coming young starting pitchers, but has a good chance at becoming a solid pitcher down the road. I'll be keeping my eye on him, I suggest you do the same.
