It appears he's changing speeds well and locating well. Aside from his 1st outing, he's looked sharp. He's probably nothing more than a bottom of rotation starter at max though. Hitters aren't used to seeing him yet and I think he'll progressively regress. TB does have some good arms, well better than Shields at least, on the horizon (Hammel, Davis, Neimann, & Jackson). I wouldn't make a move for him.

I would see how his next outing goes...then take a shot at him if you're in need of a SP.
