Odds Bobby Jenks ERA rises in the second half?

I want him but not if the above gets extreme.

huh? He probably will be the same pitcher after the break he was before. The DL stint may actually help.

His expected FIP is 3.27, largely b/c he has an uninspiring strikeout rate. He is hard to make good contact on, though, as evidenced by his 15% line drive rate. His ERA is definitely rising, so don't sell the farm expecting a Papelbon-Rivera-Nathan kind of ERA in the second half.

if hes healthy theres no reason to think his ERA wont stay around the same.
last year he had a lower ERA in the 2nd half at 2.15 ..but his ERA in the 1st half last season 3.28 wasnt as good as his current ERA of 1.95
eventhough he had a lower ERA in the 2nd half, he had more saves in the 1st half.
aslong as he is healthy i would not expect some big blow up in the 2nd half, but one bad blown save could drastically effect his ERA, which can be the same for any closer.
