He also strikes out a lot of guys, like I said he is hit or miss. He can be really really good or really really bad, maybe a change of scenery is what this guy needs

Don't forget, he has control issues.
A change of scenery isnt going to help his control problems. When hes on, his slider is unhittable, but more often than not hes all over the place. When he gets wild, he cant find the zone to save his life. Overall I think he hurts more than helps, which is why the Cubs basically just didnt want him anymore, and have been trying to give him away for a while.
