I have not watched his last two starts. Has he pitched as well as his stats indicate? Is it safe to say he has found his game again after his somewhat bad starts?

Two outings ago would have been against Detroit, I think. He was on the brink of struggling while he was there but the Tiges let him off the hook with many poor ABs. He didn't seem to throw much more than 91-92 fastball, though I thought I heard his last start he had more velocity. And 10 Ks. Worth keeping a close eye on for sure, and maybe taknig a flyer on in bigger leagues.

If he stays healthy I think he's in for a nice little run.

He's adjusting a bit to his new age-induced repertoire - but geez if anyone is gonna get it done at his age Randy's as good a bet as anyone.

I don't know about the rumor of increased pitch velocity (I missed that game), he's been hovering around 91-92mph on his fastball all season. I've watched a few of his games and he looks like he isn't trying to throw the cover off the ball and isn't overdoing it. I'm pretty sure he is just taking it easy on his arm and the rest of his body after all his past injuries, I'd be willing to bet he can still hit 95 if he wanted to though.

Last start he was absolutely filthy. Mostly working around 90mph as already mentioned, but he showed great command of his pitches and his slider was just nasty. Noone at all was able to elevate the ball. A couple of solid singles and a lucky triple, other than that just soft grounders
