Picked him up last night. Hoping he can get back near that 2007 form. Time will only tell.

I think we're looking at a guy who will flash brilliance one start, then trash the next. I own him in a 12 team mixed league, so I do feel he's worth the gamble as a low risk potentially high reward, but I'm not banking on it. I was pleased that he only walked 2 in his debut (one was intentional as well, so really only 1 in 5 and 2/3). His K-potential is great. He is literally capable of being a k per inning type. If I were to hazard a guess to what he'll do, not projecting wins or losses, I'd say 4.15 ERA 1.33 WHIP with tremendous k totals. He has the talent to post a sub 4 ERA with a WHIP under 1.30 if he can keep the walks in check, however it's important to remember that he's also capable of losing his control and being worthless as well. I for one believe that injury played a bigger part in his complete loss of control then people want to acknowledge. It's easy to paint him as being a head case, but I think the control loss was more physical then mental. He obviously walked a few more hitters then you'd like in his AAA rehab, but the percentage of his strikes thrown were promising, I'm willing to give him a shot.

I'll be keeping an eye on him as well, now that he is out from under Lou's doghouse in Chicago, he can get his career going again. I am sure he will get a looooooong leash in Baltimore.
