As soon as he hit the waiver-wire, I rushed to pick him up. Looking at the numbers (at the time he was sent to the minors), and not just the era and whip, I saw a 37:13 K:BB ratio with a ridiculous .444 BABIP against and a strand rate at I believe 62% with a fastball still around 94-95 (which is right where he normally is at). He wasn't pitching that poorly, just getting (really really) poor results (and being very unlucky as the .444 BABIP shows). The league average for BABIP is around .290-.300, and strand rate is about 75% so I figured he would regress to the mean as the season continued (barring injury). His velocity was still good, and his K:BB ratio was still way above average, so unless you thought he was injured he was worth holding onto even when in the minors (unless your league has no bench, then you would be forced to cut him as you couldn't have a zero in your active lineup each week and expect to win). If he would have been hammered down in the minors, then cutting him would have been the thing to do. Personally, I would have waited to see how he did in that 1st minor league start before deciding what to do with him. But as soon as he dominated down there, I believed he was going to be just fine. Sure glad someone else dropped him as I needed someone to replace Brett Myers.
