He's still in setup, but he's behind Otsuka, who will pitch the 8th inning. But, I don't see him doing well. Much of his performance out of the pen was driving by two "lucky" factors, a low batting average on balls in play (.251) and a low HRs per flyball. Both of those will tend to return to their former levels and I see his ERA closer to 5 than 4 and his WHIP again closer to 1.4 then 1.2
