On April 26, he was placed on the disabled list with a strained pectoral muscle, and he missed almost a month. From June 11 to July 28, he had a 19-game, 15.1 inning scoreless streak.

He entered June with a 6.23 ERA, and starting on June 11 to the end of the season, he had a 1.78 ERA in 35.1 innings.
