Hopefully this helps you out, I;m waiting till monday when he comes off waivers to grab him if he is available after watching his start friday, really was locating well, keeping guys off balance and hitting his spots. I've seen two of his starts this season and hitters have to his point been unable to really square the bat up on him, but remember once the book gets out on this guy hitters will make adjustments, and as long as he can as well he is looking great. Loved watching him outpitch the big unit.
