Debut on Friday, curious to see what he's got. Rehab #s not great but I'll keep an eye out

He used to show a lot of potential but just hasn't delivered last few years. His velocity is maxing in the high 80s so he needs to build his arm strength back before he could maybe help in very deep leagues.

But he gets the marlins first time out. It's like another rehab start

No. this is a guy that needs to prove himself. He's average at best when healthy, and his rehab hasn't proven that he's worth considering.

it is tempting given the marlins, but agreed with the above...i am going to pass with probably the ONLY pitcher right now i'd not put in against MIA (missing in action?)

Streaming him tonight but he might be worth a hold (depending on how he does tonight). His next probable starts are Cubs, Mariners, A's, Astros, Twins, and then Mets.

Wow! His upcoming schedule if there are no rainouts or injuries:

@ChC (interleague - no DH)
@Sea
vs Oak
@Hou
@Min
vs NYM (interleague - with DH)
vs Bal
@TB

That takes us to July which is obviously way too far to accurately predict a schedule but that is just about as amazing a schedule as it gets. Lots of road games but that's not an issue since US Cellular is a hitter's haven.

Why can't any pitchers I own have schedule like that???!

I back the realest and original Polanco :-)

easy schedule is going to pass him up before he gets into form. I do like him for next season though. I've always thought he's an underrated lefty

one year he showed potential. both him and gavin Floyd. since then does anyone even stream these guys ever. they pitch in the rotation but don't know even if they are used.

He sucked for 3 innings and then was great for 3.

this has to be the only pitcher who has pitched now for 5 years consistently and no one uses.

disagree. He was hurt last year so that's already not consistently pitching but from 2008-11 he was very serviceable. I owned him for 2010 and parts of 2011. No regrets. You could do a lot worse than a healthy John Danks, which unfortunately it doesn't look like he'll be this year

@Hou so probably. I'm a little torn; honestly he hasn't looked that sharp AND his velocity is still not there despite the early results in the box scores. He could easily have been getting shelled and nobody would be talking about him but I really like him as a solid player so I'm leaning yes

Houston hits .275 vs lefties. I'm not going anywhere near that matchup. He was one of my big touts this week and came through for me. Dropped him and moving on.

I just can't stomach a John Danks ratio blow-up. He nearly pulled that off against the M's.

This guy sucks. Everytime I stream him he gets bombed, then everytime I don't use him he hurls a gem. He is done out of my streamer que.
