I don't think he needs to sit 93 to be successful, but his average velocity needs to be around 91 (where it's been in his previous successful seasons).
He wasn't sharp, but he looked healthy. If he really is then he should be able to regain his prior form and becomes as much as another #3 SP. If not, he's a minor league signing and we don't have anything to lose.
