The Good: Has led the league in appearances the past 2 years (88 and 86 appearances), and has said he wants to try to get to 90 appearances this year. Depends on a 86-88 MPH sinker and a darting slider, which limited left-handed hitters to a .245 on-base percentage. Had a career best 1.16 WHIP last year. Got a lot of ground balls last year.
The Bad: Righties hit .341 against him in 2008, and .275 in his career. WHIP is over 1.6 for his career vs righties. Gave up 7 home runs in 59 innings, which is troubling.
Role: Lefty specialist who should not be allowed to face righties, but can pitch practically every day. Signed a one year 2.9 million dollar contract this off-season
