But its a complete crap shoot when it comes to how many games hes going to pitch before he gets hurt.
Hes only made 24 or more starts in a season twice in his entire 6+ year career.
And imo the DL is the only thing "i shouldve seen coming"
Agreed. Even if JJ (or a lot of the other injury prone guys that have been mentioned) does put up a great season, I definitely won't say that I should have seen it coming. It's a bit ridiculous to expect a perennially injured player to suddenly become the model of perfect health. I feel as if you think that way, you'll be burned far more often than you'll be rewarded.
That being said, there is merit to jumping on high talent injury risks, but only if the price is right...
