Updated Projection for Javier Vazquez

When I originally posted my projections for Javier Vazquez (click here to view), it was before his trade to the Atlanta Braves, so I wanted to give an update:

205.0 IP, 16 W, 3.82 ERA, 1.25 WHIP, 199 K (8.74 K/9), 54 BB (2.37 BB/9)

I actually dropped the innings a little bit, thanks to the potential of him being pulled from games for a pinch hitter.  That helped contribute to lower strikeouts (though an increased K/9) and walks, as did the fact that he will be facing a pitcher instead of a DH.  The ERA came down significantly, and the WHIP slightly.  Overall, the move makes him a great option for fantasy owners.

What does everyone else think?  Will Vazquez be a solid #2 fantasy starter or will the results be the same?
