He's a big lefty (6 foot 4) and he's only 26. What's not to like. He has battled injuries (muscle in his side last year) but last year came up with a 2 seamer to use instead of his cutter, which had become a predictable pitch. His SIERA, an ERA estimator , was 3.42. He's not an elite pitcher but are any of the Bucco pitchers right now. If I were the FO, I would be jumping on this one. You can never have enough pitching, especially big left-handed ones that keep the hitters away from the short porch in RF. If the price is right, bring him to Pittsburgh.
