If Leake can give the Reds a bunch of 200 IP, 3.50 ERA years, that would be great.
He's reverting back to a backend starter. BTW Arroyo has a career era of 4.20 and has had a single season of 3.5 or better era. Leake is heading toward his peripherals which suggests a >4.00 era, a below average starter by today's environment.
