Problem is that he strikes out a lot of hitters and because they can't center the ball get a lot of fouls balls. Even though he was cruising he threw 113 pitches in 7 innings, almost 80% were strikes. What can they do about that style so he can make it deeper into games?
Improve his secondary pitches, especially the change. If he has two swing and miss off-speed pitches he'll be nearly unhittable.
Die, Mauky, Die.
