The only thing is he's never pitched as many innings as he did this year and he has had some injury issues in the past.

Matt P wrote:Yep. Sometimes I wonder if they should think about going with a 6 man rotation next year after seeing how much better Hammel, Chen, and Gonzalez did with extra rest and the fact Bundy pitched in a 6 man rotation all year.
Jordan Tuwiner wrote:That could work actually. Especially because their relievers can go multiple innings.
