When he returned after missing a full year he pitched five solid innings a looked good. Now with New York looking for pitching help could Hernandez be a good sleeper for the second half?

He can get wins and a pretty decent K rate. Now he should have several starts in that rotation unless RJ is acquired. Not a bad investment for a back end rotation guy.
Forget the man crush. I drop what I'm doing to watch Zack Greinke pitch.

I wouldn't count out El Duque. I'm an avid Yankee hater but I like the way he pitches. Very creative in his pitches, deliveries, and hides the ball well. I know he is an injury risk but he is a solid pitcher when healthy. He's got a career record of 53-38 with a nice 4.04 ERA. Also a .237 BAA and 1.23 WHIP. I wouldn't be surprised if he had a solid season, but like I said before, an injury risk nonetheless.

I like him better than Lieber and Contreras, let's put it that way.
