In 4 starts he's given up a .396 BABIP and 16.7% HR/FB. Those are really fluky and will go down.
His 4 seam velocity is down a little early (~94) but the velocity on his 2 seam, change-up, and curve ball are all right where they have been.
His contact % and contact % inside the zone are actually a touch lower. His first strike % numbers are good relative to his career. His swinging strike numbers are actually up, which is reflected by his unsustainably high K/9. Walks are up a little, but not unreasonable.
It really just seems like a lot of bad luck on his fastball. I don't see anything alarming. This isn't Tim Lincecum losing 5 mph dropping below a 90 mph average.
