However, if he does get a starting rotation spot, he could be an interesting candidate to start on the road since his flyballs won't be nearly as hazardous in road ballparks.
he doesnt give up hard hit fly balls, they are usually pretty lazy popups.
He pitched in a hitter friendly cal league in high A and wasn't prone to the homerun there.
He gave up 3 total regular season home runs in the minors in 08 and averaged about 10k/9.
