He entered the day with an 8.61 K/9, though that number is slightly inflated due to a 7.5% SwStr%, and 2.68 BB/9. The problem has been an inflated line drive rate, at 24.8% (after a 22.1% mark in '13), and home runs, with a 1.63 HR/9. While we would expect him to correct the latter, it's hardly a guarantee. There's plenty of potential, making him worth owning, though for now you may want to simply keep him stashed on your bench until he fixes the issues. - Eric Stashin

He has a good curveball and in the past, has shown us a swing-and-miss changeup. These skills can still make him an effective pitcher, but maybe we shouldn't expect a repeat of last season's performance moving forward. At least not until that sinker improves. Sometimes, the best option is to wait out a struggling player and in this case, that looks to be the best choice. - Rich Migliorisi
