Knuckleballer just called up by the Astros, pitched a great game.

Your thoughts on him?

i wouldn't say he has much fantasy value. he doesn't really project to stay in the astros rotation long, but he did show signs of life earlier in the year in new orleans. then his walkrate went up and hr/9 ballooned.

knuckleballers generally aren't all that consistent, and the only thing fernandez projects in 5x5 right now is w's.

Agreed that knuckleballers are fun to watch, but not worth much in the fantasy world.
