"Number of wins" is one of the worst barometers you can use to grade a pitcher's abilities. "Wins" are the "batting average" of pitcher's stats, and its the kind of thing that leads to Jimmy Haynes getting a ridiculous 2 year deal simply because he ended up on the right side of the score 15 times in 2003.
With Milton, there's no reason to expect him to improve, other than wishful thinking. He's always been a fly ball/HR pitcher--no more so than last year. Unfortunately, he pitches in a park with a strong propensity for coughing up the long ball. His GB/FB ration is the reverse of what it should be for him to be effective in GAB.
