That said IMO he's more valuable to his team and to fantasy teams if he plays well 3 days a week or plays well for a few weeks at a time and then has to DL and rest shoulder.
He's been one of my favorite players, so I hope he turns this year around and leaves on a high note!
The reason he went away from his old swing is that his shoulders hurt too much. I am of three minds on this switch. One is that it is an act of desperation and that he will re-injure his shoulder and be done. Two is that his shoulder is feeling better and he is comfortable going back to his old swing, in which case he could return to fantasy relevance. The third thought is that he isn't feeling any better, but they feel if he swings like he used to he will break up some scare tissue and then recover. In this case I would expect early results, a slump, and then improvement.
I am very cautiously optimistic.
