The main thing he has going for him is MLB experience (but not any recent success), a willingness to take the mound whenever the manager wants and, after a lot of ups and downs, some durability.
That’s worth $2.5 M it seems. Not an obvious overpay as b-r lists his salaries the last two ...Read More...
