He had mechanical issues. Going to the pen won't/wouldn't help him in that regard.
There is more than mechanical issues when you lose 2 mph on your fastball, lose some command of it too and are hesitant to use your slider that was once a wipeout pitch. But given how good of a starter he used to be, he should be given every chance to fail first before limiting him as a reliever.
