He is one skill away from getting there, his BB/9 of 4.19 wasn't up to scratch.
His K/9 (10.4) and limiting of XBH were ace-like, so if he can repeat those and weigh in with a BB/9 of around 2.5......... $$$$
First year in the US, cut him some slack. Gio controlled his walk a bit last year and he was fantastic. Darvish doesn't have that far to go. Hamels in front of that Phillies defense might not be pretty.
