4 of his last 5 AAA starts have been QS. His ERA in May was 3.46. He seems to be regaining some confidence and command, giving up only one walk in each of his last four starts, totalling 28 IP. He looks as if he could be ready to return to the Twins rotation soon - the question is if there will be an opening for him.

Thats because the talented mr roto----tard on ESPN said he is coming back with vegence. He(TMR) also has Ichiro ranked higher than the likes of Josh Hamilton, just to name one. If you do get him goodluck, but I think there are safer picks on your WW, Id guess.

how high is the bridge? just kidding--Franciso is untouchable when he is healthy-I had him before he got hurt and I drafted him in the 10th round this year-I hope he is back to the old Francisco-let me see some K's-I am in a 12 team league, so no there is not much else out there-except maybe Matt Morris-just kidding

Sometimes you gotta take a risk or two to win your league. ;-)

Any word on his velocity? (I know that TJ surgery can actually add a few mph in the long run, but how does it look right NOW?) Is he throwing his slider on occasion?
Has he/pitching staff completely reconfigured his mechanics? Not sure what to think about this in particular.
Any ideas when/if he'll make the rotation?

Id like to know this stuff to. It seems my pitching staff is fading fast. Id use him for a start if I could find out some info on his velocity,delviery,etc.
