Hes ok for what he is. Honestly, his starts are the types of nights you really need to lean on your offense to bring you a win.
Yep, Mendoza doesn't need defenders. Its not like he's a young player in a sophomore slump getting unfair criticism from impatient fans, he's almost 30, did OK last year, and earned his spot this spring, but he's still a #5 pitcher.

I don't even expect the Royals to win most of the games he starts, if we did better than a 2-wins-in-5 clip on games he starts, I'd be happy.
