.464 OPS vs LHBs. If they're looking at him, they're looking at him as a lefty specialist who also can spot start or provide long relief.

Matusz is making to much to be a loogy. De La Rosa is making 4 times that and has an option for 13 million player option next year.

IMO (yea that is for you Bob, Tex did not patent it...haha) we need Price, Lee, etc.... or why bother? We have 6 starters > De-La-Rosa already. We need the short series stopper (yes I am getting hopeful).

According to Cot's, the player option was last year and that triggered a club option that Colorado exercised this year so he's a pending FA. All that said, he would be expensive for a lefty specialist. I didn't know he was making that much.

Yeah. Want a lefty specialist? Get Andrew Miller. Want a SP upgrade? Look at Ian Kennedy.
