Lieber isn't supposed to be reay for several weeks yet, at least, and even when he comes back, I'm not sure he'll be game ready. In fact I'm pretty sure he won't be......

AJ won't be back until around the All-Star break, probably a bit after. Best case scenario for him is that he is rounding into game shape by September; he may be able to help you in the stretch-run, but I wouldn't count on it......

Lieber has pitched a couple of good bullpen sessions and will possibly start a minor league rehab Friday, according rotoworld. I think he's fine. He's gonna win 10-15 this year.

For what it's worth, Lieber looked good in his very brief appearance in ST before he reinjured the groin. Supposedly, his surgically repaired arm is strong, so who knows. Kind of a high risk / high reward player. If he comes back to anything close to his form of a couple years ago, 10-15 should be a lock since run support won't be a problem.

I dont understand why everyone thinks hes gonna win 15 games. As a 5th starter, hell only pitch once every two weeks, and wont get nearly enough starts to get that many wins. Thats why I think 5th starters are by nature overrated: they never get enough opportunity to rack up stats.

Burnett is a nice guy to waste a DL slot with if you have one to burn, but don't draft the guy.

I'll let someone else see how well Lieber can pitch this year, thank you very much.
