No thanks. Closing in on 1000 IP in the Majors, not including another 300+ in the Minors. For whatever reason, he went from throwing his slider 13% his entire career, to about 25% with the Cubs. Sliders have shown to be one of the most stressful pitches that can be thrown, and he's already on the max effort side as is. He's also going to be 29 years old this year, so it's not like he's just starting his career. Trade him.
