Zach Britton getting the start tomorrow at Seattle.  

Is he worth taking a chance on?  Is he getting a second start this week?  I can't seem to find anything definitive on a 2nd start...

Thoughts?

Who does he get on the wrap around for his 2 start week?

He amazingly does have a spot in the rotation. If he doesn't get demolished tomorrow, he'll get a second start @LAA. I still have little faith in him. I think he's proved pretty convincingly that he is a mediocre pitcher. Even this year in the minors, he still has more walks than K's. He's not someone I'm rolling out there.

No shot I run him out for 2 starts @LAA. Not in consideration for a stream here. That first start is tempting but he can destroy your ratios on the wrap.

Daily leagues he's a solid pickup.

Yikes, Rotoworld didn't mention the hideous BB:K ratio when they recommended picking him up in AL-Only leagues.  I'm throwing him out there tomorrow, but unless he totally dominates I think it'll be a one and done.

Looking at the draft guide they have him being quite valuable in the next couple years - do they know something I don't?

Stuff passes the eye test when he's on.

The issue is that he usually isn't on.

Britton is the same as Arrieta to me. I've seen enough of him over the past few years to know I don't want him on my teams. I don't blame people for throwing him out there against Seattle, but he shouldn't be played after that.

I threw him out there for a stream and of course he gives up a HR to lead off the game.  Question for those who have the Pitch FX data that shows the dots in the strike zone:  CBS had about all of his balls in the 1st inning in the strike zone.  Can anyone get something that shows me if the ump is crazy or the CBS guy tonight?

first two innings a lot of ball ones. strike zone looks fair so far.

on the positive...lots of ground ball and outs. montero hit a weak fly ball and the homer. that was a bad pitch in a hitters count.

He won't even get a shot for the second start this week after getting optioned. I think Britton can safely be called a bust at this point unless he discovers something. Even his AAA numbers this year were all smoke and mirrors.
