Via Ladson. A fine signing for cheap (I'm pretty much a sucker for any one year cheap deal for someone that used to be good). Big questions are whether he can stay healthy and what of last season was a fluke and what was real. If we think his historical stats make more sense this is what I think
He can still make them swing and miss (K/9 rate 10.71 last year - 11.57 career), but is no longer has good enough control (BB/9 6.05 - 5.14). GB rate screams fluke (57.4% GB last year - 40.7% career) but it could be a function of pitch selection (slider percentage way up, fastball way down last year). Of course that means either he stays in one-pitch territory with a pitch he can't place, or he goes back to mixing in pitches that will get hammered. The former sounds more likely and more appealing.
A decent enough reliever to have in the pen that can maybe give you the K, when you can afford a walk. Then again - isn't that what Henry Rodriguez is around for?
