All the 2016 feels in that clubhouse if/when he joins Kipnis in Chicago.

Last good year was 2017. Awful last year. Probably done, yeah? Worth a flyer with this bullpen though.

He still missed bats and got Ks last year. But he also walked a ton of dudes and gave up a ton of dongs, so he will fit right in. FB velo is down a good 2 ticks but he upped his curve usage. Maybe they think they can tinker with the curve like they have with others. He’s probably done and sucks but worth trying out in SB I suppose. I’d hope Megill, Adbert and Steele are all ahead of him to get bullpen looks.

Doesn't hurt to see what he has left but looking at his stats the last two years I'm guessing is his velo is down and he's struggling with his other pitches. Might be cooked but we don't have a great pen at the moment so
