And for a guy who can only throw a no movement fastball he seemed to do pretty well in his 16 starts with I believe over a dozen of them being quality starts.
Leake already went 12-9 with a 3.86 ERA in 26 starts. That's easily #3 starter production, and a #2 starter on many teams. He did that in the majors when Kelly was in single A.
