I don't necessarily agree with that. I have him on one of my teams so I've been watching him very closely. He's always had solid stuff. His biggest problem was and still is control. He's improved on that tremenously this season. I think that because of his control, he wasn't necessarily ranked as well as he should have been. Showing a lack of control longer than expected as well as setting the minor league record for hit batsmen would scare some people off and lead them to grade him lower than he actually is. He's really come together this season especially in the starting rotation rather than as a reliever. He's also done most of his pitching as a reliever which may not be his forte but as a starter right now, he's been amazing. He has some nasty stuff right now. I'd give him a minimum of 3 more starts to see how he turns out before thinking about whether or not if he's a keeper. He's definitely cooled off in his last few outings but still pitching solid ball. Johnson is pitching his life out right now and he's only 22 to boot! Give him a few more starts before you start to look at him.
Tell me what you think of my team. All advice accepted! Thanks!
