Is this guy worth picking up? Hes had 2 quality starts in a row and according to MLB.com hes a top 50 prospect. What do you guys think?

I'd be anxious to hear any KC fans who have watched him pitch. Wasn't expecting much from this guy, so a firsthand account of him this year would be great. Any info other than the box score is helpful....

You weren't? He was considered KC's best prospect last year, and can really deal. Future All-Star.

Just because KC paid him big bucks doesn't necessarily make him a future all star. He hasn't shown much between AA and AAA, with his ERA close to 5 and a WHIP over 1.3. He has has issues with walks as well, holding just over a 2:1 K/BB at AAA. Take a flier if you can, but I wouldn't expect much.
