He has made a living off of throwing 88 MPH fastballs. His velocity has actually ticked up this year compared to 2011 and 2012, his K/BB is 3.75 but his BABIP is .403 and LOB% is 62. Neither of those are in any way sustainable. I know he's being hit hard, but he isn't this bad. I only watched one game of his, and his splitter looked as good as ever. As bad as he's been I would bet on him turning it around and having a decent season with an ERA of about 4. That's obviously not great, but in most leagues it's rosterable, and there's a semi-decent chance he turns it around and puts up a low-3s ERA with a very low WHIP and above average Ks.
