His velocity has been consistent almost the entire year. Even the other night it was only about 2 MPH less than usual, which could be explained easily by normal distribution. Tonight he was mostly sitting at 95/96.
If he's still having these issues in a week, then it's time to conclude there's something more going on. But off the basis of two appearances, sometimes guys simply go through periods where they don't have their full strength. That's not uncommon at all.
Examples of this? 5 mph is a big difference on a fastball
