He was 4-7, 4.00 ERA in the 2nd half last year- if he can prove he's healthy- his value will be highest at this trading deadline- vs. holding on to him for next year.
With Sale, Santiago, Quintana, Danks, E. Johnson (AAA)- I think we can have solid rotation without him- so if we can get decent value- I say go for it.
I agree. I'd rather get something for him and save the $$$ than keep him if we don't surround him with any talent next year. I'm sure we can get something decent for him, but it probably isn't going to be a "great" prospect. Even if he comes back throwing great, teams would feel it's just a matter of time until he's on the DL again.
