You are right. Last year he was around 97 and this year he's down to about 92-94. His velocity is down a little, but this can't explain everything. I think his problem has been his control. He allows way too many baserunners. The league is only hitting .258 off of him and he's only given up 12 homers, but he's walked 58. That's way too many BB. If you look at his recent starts you realize that his walks are way down, so that is a great sign....I think he's ready for a pretty nice stretch coming up. He's still striking people out at will.
