He'll be 35 at the start of the season, but he also has shown no signs of age/wear and tear. He's maintained an average fastball velocity right at 92.5 for several years (his AVG last year was the same as it was in 2010, for example).
He takes good care of himself, has good mechanics, and has never really been a flamethrower. I don't think we'll see his mid-30s destroy him like it does some pitchers.
