He has lost velocity. Whether that's because his arm is tired, his mechanics are messed up, or his control is bad and he's aiming instead of throwing, who knows. But last year, he averaged 94.5 mph with his fastball, and this year it's averaging 92.7. Recently, it's been averaging lower than that. I'm not sure you can look at these and say he hasn't had some velocity issues:
