I'm not sure how it all works, but he was DFA'd today. I was wondering if we could grab him and throw him in Iowa, here's why:
1. He's not been too bad. His ERA this year sucks, but he still has a career 3.97 ERA and 103 ERA+.
2. He's still young (26 years old).
3. We will have holes in the rotation pretty soon (Shark, Hammel), and the timing might be such that he has a bit of time in the minors to work on some stuff that obviously isn't working this year and come in and help us not lose 100 games in the 2nd half.
Again, I was just wondering what everyone else thought, this is not a PICK HIM UP NOW EPSTEIN YOU SUCK kinda post. He's an intriguing name with intriguing stuff. So I was intrigued.
