K-Rod had been throwing on a sprained ankle since last Summer but for the most part it's been fine and he sprained the other ankle at the beginning of this year. Thankfully, the most recent injury hasn't been a pressing enough issue to see him go to the DL and it seems K-Rod will be fine for the long run. However, K-Rod's been more cautious in his delivery, given the brashness of it, and so we're talking about 2-4 mph off his velocity. Thus, I wouldn't expect K-Rod to justify his draft position, given his ratios could be underwhelming, but he'll still rack up 40-45 saves as long as the ankle holds up just fine.
