I'm very torn on his potential return this season. I've clinched a playoff spot without him and haven't really factored him into any plans. My concern is that they activate him right before or during the H2H playoffs and I start him and he gets shelled. I would almost rather just not even have the decision to make.

Or he could come in be fresh and dominate. That’s why they call it gambling.

im wondering if the first 1 or 2 appearances at the big league level, they use him in a an opener (as the 2nd pitcher.  so he might only go 3 or 4 innings, but he could steal you a Win.

Well obviously... Otherwise I wouldn't even consider it. The upside is the only thing I'm clinging to for this season. Hopefully he's a league winner and not a league loser.

The current state of pitching is basically walking through minefields - H2H matchups will come down to whoever has the fewest explosions.

Championship week. Anyone going to start him against the trout and ohtani-less angels?

I'm not. I don't see the value. He's going to throw probably 3-4 innings max. If that's the case he can't qualify for a win or a QS so he can only help in ratios, but he could also completely destroy your ratios. Risk/reward not there for me.
