I'm beginning to think he might be the real deal.

He's certainly done nothing to prove otherwise.  He's just a pain in the ass for hitters.  Gives you maybe one pitch per at bat that can be squared up.  Everything else is fluttering, diving, swerving, dying, etc.  He's really fun to watch.  Seriously, it's like watching a nasty whiffle ball pitcher.

We have a few guys like this in my old man, 40 and over baseball league.  You see the guy warming up and everything he's throwing looks hittable, and then you go up to bat and he throws the pitch and it looks hittable, and then you swing and it goes about 14 feet on the ground or is an infield pop up and you're like "WTF just happened???"
