Ground ball rate at 56%...sub 30% fly balls...that's usually going to keep your ERA under 4 as long as you aren't walking a ton of guys...
Yea, the BABIP could easily correct which will lower the LOB% and both of those things will probably happen..but there's no reason he can't be a fairly consistent, high 3 ERA pitcher the rest of the way
I agree that he likely will pitch to a high 3 low 4 ERA. The problem is, that's just not worthwhile if it comes with a 1.30-1.35 WHIP and a low strikeout rate, yet as of last week he was owned in more Yahoo! fantasy leagues than a guy like Gavin Floyd.
