I picked him up off waivers in 2005, and benefited greatly from that. I then wasted a draftpick on him in 2006, and 2007 (guess I just don't learn. Lol.). I wouldn't take the gamble here, unless its a real low draft pick. Until he shows he is actually back, hes not worth it. Hes been a real big disappointment the last two years. JMO, of course.

He is not worth any consideration at this time and he also pitches in a terrible, terrible rotation.

Well, I do think he is worth consideration. He played in a terrible rotation in 2005 and put up some of the best #'s in MLB that year. The issue is this guy's injuries. This is a 30 year old guy with a very long injury history, and he will be pitching in a smaller ballpark this year. So you gotta weigh that against his impressive 05 numbers and very good '06 numbers. I think he's a guy that you could definitely take a chance on in a deep league, and in a standard 12 team league he might be worth a late round flyer if you've don't have other pitchers with serious health concerns.

I fail to see how four guys sitting in the dugout during Patterson's starts will impact his fantasy value. That being said, I'm taking a wait and see approach. I liked him last year, but won't be drafting in this year. If he gets off to a good start I'll grab him if he's a free agent. If someone else in the league wants to draft him, I'd let them roll the dice and not feel too badly about it.

He is on my radar as a possible $1 pitcher in my auction league.
Let's go Mets!

Maybe a late flyer in deep leagues until he shows he can consistently pitch and stay off the dl
