Is he starting to show signs that he is worth starting in a 14 team mixed roto league?

He's definitely showing signs...maybe now that all of the attention is off of him, he's finally getting a chance to play without all the pressure. He was a FA in my 10 team AL-only league, and I grabbed him at the beginning of the week to fill in for Crede. Now I'm thinking that he stays in my starting lineup.

Pressure? Maybe. I think it's more likely facing easier pitching in warmer weather. Clearly there is an adjustment period for a kid coming from AA, but AG faced some of the more dominent pitchers in baseball from the very first couple of series. I think what we are seeing now is his talent and confidence growing as he finally settles in.

Give the kid some more time, It's not like he has a mentor in the KC Clubhouse/ lineup helping him. Or protection for that matter. He will come around sooner or later

Just pulled him off the wire this morning.
Hopefully he makes a nice UT for the rest of the season.
