I like him quote a bit. Outstanding K rate and a low walk rate. That's fantasy gold. The only question here is innings (145 last season). Last season the Tribe babied him a bit. There were several times where he was shut down in the 5th or 6th inning right around 70 pitches. Nothing in his metrics look fluky outside of a high LOB%. My projection would be something like this ...

ERA = 3.30-3.40
WHIP = 1.18
W = 10-12
K = 180-190 (depends on IP)

I could see them trying to keep his IP totals around 175.

Yeah well he could be my sleeper for the year. I grabbed him of WW instead of waiting. Think he will go 160 overall

I think pushing 200 ks a mid 3s ERA and 175 or so innings is a good bet on him, take him if he's a free keeper or late round steal or throw-in on a trade you won't be sorry.
