Well obviously, he lost the plate, and hitters hit 36 points better. He pitched 27.1 more innings (180.2 - 208.0). Looks to me like a slide or an injury. I'm not sure I buy into him being in RJ's shadow, especially with all those walks. Maybe Arizona's poor season had something to do with it, but if a guy can't find the plate, he doesn't belong on my fantasy team. The rise in BB's and decrease in k's with more innings suggest that hitters have made an adjustment to him. A third year for a pitcher is extremely important, and if he doesn't make an adjustment, he will fall into the "one year wonder club." Be wary of overpaying for him this year.
