Like I said, his numbers aren't great and his strikeout ratios in particular would probably scare me off ever giving anything worthwhile up for him, but he's also got a big frame (6'4 - 220) and is a pretty young guy (22) that has probably been pushed a little too fast through the minor leagues. There's definately some room for development.
He's strictly back of the rotation material, but as pitching starved as most clubs are right now, the Indians should be able to get good value out of him if Shapiro decides to go that route. If they decide to keep him, I think there might be some value there as well.
He would be quite servicable for acquiring some good bullpen arms, if nothing else.
