Prior to this start his ERA was 4.44 with a WHIP of 1.41. Opposing batters were batting .302 against him prior to this start.
He's clearly having an off year. I'm wondering if he's hiding an injury. What is wrong with him?
183 1/3 IP in 2007, a career high at the time and then over 260 IP last year, including the playoffs. He basically pitched about 2 more months worth of innings then he ever had before in a season. He's worn out, that's what's wrong with him. It was a red flag in my book on draft day.
