Stock Up: Michael Wacha

Being likely the most suspect addition to the rotation this offseason, Wacha has put a lot of doubts to rest.

Pitching 7.0 innings over the course of three starts, Wacha hasn’t allowed a runner to cross the plate and has struck out five while allowing only two hits and one walk. After dealing with injuries and a drop in production over recent seasons, Wacha is coming out of the gates hot and has largely secured a consistent role in the rotation when the season opens in April.
