Worst strikeout rate of any Right handed pitcher since 2011, career era of 4.21 and doesnt have great control. Im trying to be positive but how is that worth 10 million dollars?? Not too mention he's pitched the entire time in the NL, just like Marquis..
$5 mill for a pitcher is pennies. There is nothing wrong with the contract. If he is terrible, he is still pretty cheap.

I think this is just a cheap bandaid for us, until all the youngsters are ready. We only invested two years in him.
