Nobody has more question marks then Jimenez, who has stunk for over a year.
Even the Indians are worried about his dip in velocity.
Trumbo at worst goes 20/70.
I guess I think Trumbo can do worse than 20/70 especially if playing time ever starts to be a problem (bad at 3B so has to split time at DH and 1B). While I agree Jimenez is awful, there is still upside there. His k rate and BB rate have stayed the same and he has been a little bit unlucky with BABIP. There are plenty of concerns like his fastball isn't as fast anymore. If he gets that fixed, he could turn things around.
