Is this guy still hurt or is it going to take some time for him to get back into form?

He is a great buy low guy right now in a few leagues. Owners have hung onto him while he was injured and his last two outings have made them impatient and ready to deal him.

His fastball is down 3-4 mph from last season. As a result his Ks are down. I'm hoping he just needs to build up his arms strength and his drop in velocity isn't going to be permanent or long-lasting.

That and his location is a bit off, which is related some with Ervin building up his arm strength. The lack of velocity comes in when Ervin normally tries to bite the hitter into looking/swinging on the edge of the strike zone or down and away. When he can't do that and he's had to throw a strike, he's proven to be a bit hittable. No surprise to see Ervin in a rough patch immediately.
