It's not like he's coming out of retirement at age 40, he's 33 years old. Unless his back acts up again, I'm fairly confident that he'll be at the very least a solid #3 starter on a fantasy squad and I think he made all the right moves to make sure he can pitch 4 solid months, but again, all we need are 3.

I'm with you. I see the upside as tremendous. As long as he stays healthy you can safely assume 3.20/1.20 with 7 k/9. With any luck, he will be 2010 Oswalt, which is way better than anything you'll find on the wire all season.

Limited upside? In his last full season (2010) he had a 2.73 era, 1.03 whip, and 193 k's. If you think Trevor Bauer has that kind of upside for this year, you're out of your gord. The upside here is cy young caliber pitcher.
Not saying I expect numbers that good, but I'd your gonna talk about upside, he has recently proven he can be that good.
