Definitely frustrating owning him with the dud he just tossed the other night, but there are some silver linings. One, he's healthy, he's throwing 90+ MPH fastballs, he's inducing ground balls, and he's having no trouble reaching 100 pitches. Considering he came back from a long layoff, I'd imagine he'll round into form anytime now, at the same time, it's frustrating owning him, don't let it blind you into dealing him with his value at about its lowest point. I know if I didn't own him I'd be trying to buy low like crazy.

If he's healthy, he'll be fine. I tried to buy low but got shot down, and I would absolutely stash him on my bench for a few starts if he was on waivers/FA.

Has anyone heard anything to suggest he might not be totally healthy?
