Not really. He may have had a good ERA at the start of last year, but he wasn't pitching well at all. He had 10 walks through his first 3 starts with a lucky 1.93 ERA. It was never going to be sustainable as long as he showed that kind of command and control.
I don't know that he'll be able to keep up what he's doing right now, but as I said, he's completely changed everything about him.
