He pitches well, but loses a tough game to Norfolk tonite 3 to 1. His record drops to 6-4.He went 7&2/3 With no relief from Almanzar, sound familiar.From his brief appearances with the Bombers i dont think he is a major league pitcher.

I think he may be a reliever somewhere (probably not for the Yankees). But the humongeous contract he signed with the Yankees will make him unattractive to most other teams except as a middle of the rotation (or higher) starter.

He mimicks El Duque's windup but he doesn't hide the ball as well. If he actually put his hand BEHIND his raised leg then maybe he would be a little tougher to hit.

But like El Duque, he gives up the long ball... definitely not major league stuff.

If he had a better fastball, he could be a starter. But the only thing that would make him an effective long reliever is his elusiveness first time through the batting order.
Other then that, he'll maybe get a shot with somebody, but end up in the minor leagues over the longhaul.
