I've been watching him all year, I think that he's gaining confidence and this start is a indicator of it, not to mention a further confidence booster. Anyone who has seen him pitch knows he's got great stuff, and for such a young pitcher. He pitched a perfect game in pawtucket! He's only got to battle mental problems, but I think he will be alright in that department.

As for a fantasy pick-up, don't be mad if he has a couple bad outings, and don't expect many more shutouts, but I think if you stick with him you will gain more than lose.

hes decent but if his control isn't on watch out. like the previous guy said i wouldn't be surprised if he got lit up a few times, but he could be a decent starter if he's one of your last pitchers.

He isnt that young. I believe he is 27 or 28. Other than that he has pitched well but he was never all that highly touted so expect him to come back down to earth.

Because he plays on the Red Sox.....and that means run support.

so he'll get run support? so a 13-9 win is still good for arroyo fantasy wise?

If you can wait one more start, I would hang on to Batista to see how he does next time.

If you think he won't be a FA for that long, then yeah I would grab him. I think he has more upside than Batista, though will probably put up similar numbers, but you never know.
