i'm liking him as a sleeper...apparently that blood clot had been bothering him for awhile to the point that his arm was so numb he couldnt even feel the seems on the ball. having only 2 pitches will keep him from being elite (personally they should try to convert him to a closer) but i think 12-15 wins, a 4.00-4.5 ERA and 180-200 K's is pretty reasonable (not sure about his WHIP, he walks to many guys, i'd say 1.3-1.4ish)...not bad for someone who can be had really late

His arm was so numb he couldn't feel the seams? If that was me i'm pretty sure I would head to the hospital instead of ignoring it only to give up 4 runs in the first inning every 5 days.
Here's the pitch on the way, a swing and a belt! Left field! Way back! BLUE JAYS WIN!

Beltre usually seems to be a 2nd half beast, at least for the last couple years.

Adam LaRoche would seem to be the most extreme case. He is useless in April/May and is great afterwards. In general it seems a lot of power hitters get off to slow starts and a lot of speed guys wear down as the year goes on.
