4th Major League Season

The Good: Threw one of the two CG shutouts for the Mets last season (last week of the season). Started his career with the Giants, but was designated for assignment after going 0-7 combined in the big leagues in 2007 and 2008. He has pretty good control, but has just mediocre stuff - high 80s fastball, decent change, as well as a slider and curve. Tries to be portrayed as "Tom Glavine lite".
The Bad: He is a finesse lefty who doesn't miss bats (poor 5.1 strikeouts per nine innings in his career, and only a 3.5 K/9 during his tenure with the Mets). He also is prone to giving up too much home runs. Limited upside.
Role: He is out of options, so would have to clear waivers to go down to Buffalo. He is a roster-filler for Buffalo and hopefully he won't be needed in Flushing again this year.
