Is this guy worth a pickup? He's been lights out so far but will he stay in the rotation? I would think he would take over for Koronka. His minor league numbers are not too impressive but you wouldn't know it. Playing in TEX could hurt him but he's looked tough so far.


Thanks,

I think this is the classic case of a new pitcher that hitters haven't gotten used to seeing. I predict he'll ge hammered soon and be back in the minors or inserted in the pen. I'm sure they're are better bets to go with.

Check out his Yahoo! picture. Pretty funny.

...and while you're at it, check out Vincente Padilla--he looks like the devil.

i think he could be a solid pitcher, but i agree its probably a case of hitters seing him the first time. i think he sticks as the 5th pitcher for now...but when eaton comes back, he's probably the oddman out.
