He has become a nice streaming option / spot starter when good matchups present themselves though
I would tend to agree with this assessment. I have him in my 20 team league and he's certainly relevant in a league that size but I will spot start him based on match up. He isn't really relevant to an owner like the original poster, considering what his staff looks like (Halladay, Hamels, Greinke, Santana, CJ Wilson, etc.).

Agreed. It's a tough division and I'm not sure how many wins he'll get when playing in league. I like the spot start assessment. If it's a deep league and you absolutely need him, I'd maybe grab him. But if you have some solid starters, maybe not. Again, i think it's the amount of desperation you're looking at.
