Would like to see him as a starter as well, however i am not sold on his durability. Look what happened earlier this year, he pitched in a few games back-to-back, about 30 pitches or so. He then lost his speed and he didn't admit to anyone there was a problem (remember when Hernandez was speaking to him in the dugout following the inning). He was rested for half a week, came back and threw pretty well.
Until recently the wheels came off, not sure if it is truley a injury or a way to move players around until he finds out whats wrong mentally,mechanically. Either way, he has to prove he can handle the grind of a 100 pitch outing every 5th day. Not just throwing, but throwing for strikes. We dont need another Edison out there. As of now he hasnt proven that to me.
