I'm not the Partch voter, but he's no longer a starting pitcher. He was a dreadful starter for more than four years, and then, early last season, they moved him to the pen and he took off. He had two or three awful outings but by and large was outstanding in relief. He's a big guy whose good stuff seems to play well in that role. Looking in from the outside, he was immediately transformed from hopeless to prospect.
