He entered the day with a .302 BABIP and 74.4% strand rate, so luck isn't an issue. He also had an 8.48 K/9, 2.71 BB/9 and 52.4% groundball rate, meaning he's shown the trio of skills we love. While W have been his biggest issue, that could quickly be remedied should he be dealt to a contender. The bottom line is that there is no reason to think he's going to completely collapse and should remain one of the better pitchers in the league moving forward. - Eric Stashin
