Highly tauted coming inot the season as a mid-season sleeper. His number thus far;

IP AB H 2B HR BB IW K AVG OBP SLG OPS BABIP WHIP
37.3 155 43 12 4 22 1 30 0.277 0.365 0.445 0.810 0.322 1.74

Very pedestrian. Anyone have any thoughts on this guy?

I wouldn't touch him until that BABIP comes down. Of course, he does only have 1 IW, so that's a silver lining... X-I

I had to look it up on MiLB.com to figure it out. He has a 4.85 ERA and 1.66 WHIP through 39 innings in AAA. Pretty much everything is up from last year.

There's not much room for him, but if he is called up I wouldn't pick him up in my 12 team mixed. Deeper leagues, I would probably take a flier.

Good strikeout potential, but I see him as more of a #3 or #4 starter.

Very disappointing. I expected big things from Gio this year. I thought he would compete for AL ROY. I guess there is still time for him to turn it around but...

It took him a year to get adjusted to AA so it may take another year of AAA for him to adjust.

Ease up there Hoss, I was just commenting on the numbers you put up there. If you want some commentary on more useful stats like ERA and WHIP, put those in a post instead.

A guy can't have a little fun around here anymore? Sheesh!
