Is his terrible command and high walk rate something to worry about. I have him on my team and im thinking of trying to sell high on him for his last 2 good outings. Should I sell high or will his command straighten out and he will continue to post around a 3 ERA?

Or does anyone just have news on him at all?

I don't think phrases such as, "always had" is appropriate for someone who has had only 1 year in the majors and no time in the minors. In Japan he had a WHIP of 1.1 - 1.3 with about a walk every other inning and in his first few years in Japan he had about a 4:1 K:BB ratio.

Now, is there anything behind you, "highly doubt[ing]" him finishing with an ERA under 3.3? Or is this just personal opinion?
0-3 to 4-3. Worst choke in the history of baseball. Enough said.
