He started off the year great but had a short DL stint, as soon as he got off the DL he had 2 rough starts but pieced it together against texas in arlington for his 3rd start back, only giving up 1 run over 6.1 innings.
braden is my biggest sleeper this week, i picked him and romero up this week to attempt to replace peavy in my dynasty league. braden has the dodgers tonight AT dodger stadium then has the padres in petco over the weekend. both are the best pitcher's parks in baseball. braden has also flown under the radar this year with a 3.33 season ERA but the K's seem to turn people off a bit (54 in 81 innings).
couple other pitchers i have picked up or monitoring are:
trevor cahill (available in almost every league except dynasty's and his season ERA is heavily scewed by 2 starts where he gave up 7 runs each, but if you take those 2 starts out he has a low 3.00 ERA)
manny parra (has been horrible and sent down to AAA but he should be monitored closely but stays on the waiver wire until he makes a quality start in the majors)
vin mazzaro (brilliant in 3 starts so far but small sample size and faced week offenses in SF, BALT, and CHW)
chris tillman (i know he's a prospect but he is lights out in AAA and when he gets the call he will be picked up in every league)
