Also, the two starts before last weren't miserable at all. 5 ER in 11 IP with 12 strikeouts and no walks.
He's developing a bit of a HR problem but then again his BABIP is a bit high despite having been a FB pitcher so far sooo
That's the difference between watching the game and reading the stat lines. He is leaving pitches up and down the middle on a regular basis. The Braves announcers have been talking about it for several starts now.
Stay with him if you like. But he has visibly lost his confidence.
