I think the fact that he is new to the league has helped him also.
I agree that he will regress from where he is. However, when looking at his regression from past years, I think we can argue that the regression won't be as severe. He's switched leagues, which helps, and he pitches in the worst offensive division in the national league, and on an excellent team, which will help with wins. I don't think he'll be this good for the rest of the year, but I don't expect the tailspin that was last year. Somewhere around a 3.5 era and a 1.15 whip for the rest of the year would be my projection. Still very solid, and I wouldn't be shopping him for any sort of discount, that's for sure.
