I need a stud set-up A, but my guy's stats and 2nd pitch scare me. Yet, I am about to commit $16M for three years, by re-signing him, My question: Is this guy a Set-up A stud, or a pretender? He is 29.
He has never had an ERA under 3.57--but has never pitched more than 50 Innings. My take is he has underperformed, because the dude needs to pitch-and no manager has let him. He reached is ratings peak last season. He has 91 MakeUp, but seems like a chronic under-performer.
Re-signing FA begins in a few hours....and I could use some help. I cannot make an $18M mistake; he wants 3 years x$6M--lastly, he is a type A FA, and under my control. Should I be grateful for the comp picks and let him go, or re-sign the dude?
