Ive never even heard of this guy before, but Ive been paying attention to him pitching today and looks phenomenal. Granted his fastball is only low 80's and his curveball is kinda all over the place, but throw in a slider, knuckleball, and changeup and that's one heck of an arsenal.

He struck out 7 batters so far in the first 3 innings, giving up only 1 hit (ironically to the pitcher) against the Marlins who aren't terrible offensively. Is he a guy anyone has been watching or just a half game wonder. lol

He's a fairly well established mediocre pitcher with horrible walk rates (unequivocally a very bad sign for guys that couldn't strike out thier grandmother), but stranger things have happened. Sometimes it just clicks. Could be worth a flier in deep leagues even if he only has lightning in a bottle for a month.

Spoke too soon.... Gave up 2 walks then a HR. But even so, with the kind of pitching arsenal it still seems like it could make for a good pitcher.

That's his weakness... walk, walk, jack. The 7 Ks are notable though. He got them all except Hanley and the pitcher through 3 innings.

He's an emergency starter because the Dodgers have ran out of Ortiz's. ;-7
