What was he worth with only 8 wins?  I'd think his other stats should be pretty consistent, but the wins will decline, even with the same use pattern.

I'm working on Big Prices for the Guide. Today I have Ryan Yarbrough with a price of $8. What do you think?

Roughly the same price as Yonny Chirinos and possibly Brent Honeywell...pending on how the Rays choose to manage his workload?

Here's a tough guy to price.

What do we think?

Holds the suddenly sputtering Red Sox to one run over five innings, starting with the first -- and doesn't get the win.

But the Rays win their seventh straight, while the Red Sox have lost five of seven.

Win No. 12 last night. Two of them in games he started.

In response to the "he cheats" under Vazquez, I'd reply with, it's complicated.  Yes, he started in 1 of his 7 wins (at least as far as I can tell).  But, he also has thrown 6 IP in one, 6 1/3 in another, 5 in a a third. Those were legitimate starter IP in today's game. 

I'd call him a swing man like Billy Swift before the Giants made him a full-time starter.

I love this idea! 

This is better than hitting the pitcher 8th which I don't like, but must admit, I haven't bothered to look up any data on the topic.

VULTURE START WATCH
Today:
1. Sergio Romo — With Tampa facing a righty-heavy heart of the Angels’ order, Kevin Cash will give Sergio Romo his first career start on Saturday night before bringing in rookie southpaw Ryan Yarbrough. Cash says he’s been kicking the idea around for a while. Will this new approach reap the benefits that Cash is hoping for? Will the Vulture Start Watch become a regular feature? Will Mike Trout make this experiment look like a failure two batters into it? Only time will tell, but with the Rays employing a four-man rotation this year, this plan may not be Romo’s last start.

He looks like he's settling into the rotation.  By now, you likely missed out.  At this point he's still a 4-5 inning starter, but nowadays that's not too uncommon.
