Yes. Yes he is. He seems to be a good value play as a free agent this off-season. He doesn't have the glitz and glamour but he has the arm and a solid group of comparable pitchers for his three most important skill based peripherals. While his K/9 is down from his 2011 campaign, he did walk less batters and raise his GB/FB ratio. Anibal Sanchez is going to make some team a nice little starting pitcher. Who will be the lucky suitor.
