Why? A week ago he had a 3.45 ERA. Two horrible outings later that is up to 7.36. It's not like the guy has been getting bombed all year long. Aside from adjusting to the role, I think coming to a winning team and being put into a 6th/7th inning type role might help get him back on track. I know he's lost some velocity, but if he can regain some of that velocity he can still be a very effective pitcher. Certainly much better than Vizcaino at this point.
