I'd say he's just had a few bad outings and I think 9/10 he gets more guys out than Aaron Harang in a given start.
Would love to see him up here but I don't think it will happen this season either.
From someone who has charted all of his games but his most recent one... the guy has legit control problems. His K/BB isn't good and its better than his ability to hit his target is. If he comes up today as a starter, he wouldn't make it 5 innings in under 120 pitches every time out.
