2010 Fantasy Baseball Projections
Groundball-reliant, dominance-light righty performed well in winter ball, making some adjustments that reportedly improved his sinking fastball and slider. Fausto Carmona's slight uptick in strikeouts and hugely lucky BABIP spiked his value in '07. It would take similar circumstances now. However, his strand rate has been an issue in the last two seasons - a mature approach with runners on base would help make him valuable in-season. Put him on your mixed watch list and take a late stab on him in AL-only end-games. In mono, he could be cheap gold.
