I'd be happy with anything under a 4.00 ERA and 175+ K's. I got him very late and I was surprised to see him there considering his Cy Young caliber season a few years ago. I think the team switch hurt him last year.

Those splits are exaggerated. He still had a 3.80 ERA and 101 K in 94 innings after the break that year and he only had one month with an ERA over 4.41. The year before that he had a 3.47 ERA with 198 K.
I think as long as you are treating him like the guy with the high 3 ERA and a high K rate over those 300 some innings rather then the guy who had an ERA under 1 thru 12 starts you are fine.
