He had a rough first outing. He said he was nervous and it felt like he was a rookie all over again. I expect he will settle down and be a decent 4th or 5th starter, but if he continues to struggle, it's back to the bullpen, but not as the closer.
Last year I suggested people give Lowe a shot when many others claimed he should stay on the waiver wire. I'm not going to tout Kim. I think he gets torched as a starter. He is worth a gamble though using the same logic I used last year. He hasn't failed yet, so he is worth a gamble over a proven mediocre player. Kim can be unhittable and get lots of K's, so I wouldn't be shocked if he did what Lowe did or better. IMO he fails as a SP, but I could be very wrong.
