From what I've been seeing, the fastball is indeed his problem. He's been leaving it up in the middle of the dish basically. But isn't the fastball the easiest to locate? I always felt it was personally. So with that in mind, I don't see this being a lingering problem for him. His breaking balls are money in the bank. FB's out of the zone to keep the hitters timing off and he'll be right as rain IMO.
