Does anyone know his status? Is he definitely in the starting rotation or is he going to be a reliever?

He is not definitely in the rotation. In fact, right now I'd say he's the odd man out. Unless the bumbling fool David Wells gets kicked out. But that's not gonna happen.

and I drafted him.... Oh well, I guess I better find a waiver wire pitcher to replace him. Is he even worth holding on to?

I would wait a while until you drop him unless there's a good proven starter available. A spot could open up over spring training and the Yankees isn't exactly the least injury-prone rotation in the league. He should be a good reliever who eventually finds a spot in the rotation. I don't think it will take that long. But he's surely not a lock for a spot so it's up to you. I assure you someone else will grab him if you drop him...

I dropped him yesterday from my team...my team is a bit pitcher heavy (all 3 bench spots were taken up by pitchers), so i dropped him and picked up a hitter. I found absolutely 0 trade interst in him, and it doesnt look like anyone will pick him up off waivers, even though its a fairly deep league (23 man rosters, 12 teams)

i heard that he was competing for a starting pos. but not much chance he will start off there and he wont do much stat-wise in the bullpen
When my time on earth has passed, I hope the bury me upside down so my critics can kiss my ass.

This is a tough call. He's not pitched well but its early. Orlando Hernandez was good quickly when he came - remember he came up from the minors quickly. This guy is supposed to be good so I wouldn't bail out too early.
