And at 27 he still has plenty of time to put his health issues behind him and possibly reach his potential. So unlike a lot of the 36ish old guys some have been bringing up there could be a long term reward for this incredibly small risk also.
43 in 182 ain't bad... just don't recall that many being "in the clutch" so to speak.
