Jeremy Guthrie... back as a prospect?

I'd basically forgotten about Guthrie after his past few years.  After dominating the Eastern League, he blew up in Buffalo.  He'd gotten a few courtesy looks by the Indians, but it looked as though the prospect label was officially off of him.  

This spring, there were some positive rumblings and he got an early call to Cleveland to try and help their bullpen.  I was browsing through the minor league stats yesterday and came across his line for the season:  

3-0, 0.53 ERA, 6 GS, 34 IP, 24 H, 10 BB, 25 K, 2 R

Even more impressive are his stats over his past three starts and getting sent down from Cleveland back to Buffalo.  The past three starts go as follows:

6 IP, 5 H, 0 R, 4 K, 1 BB
5 IP, 5 H, 0 R, 7 K, 3 BB
5 IP, 4 H, 0 R, 5 K, 2 BB

The innings are a little low, but I'm guessing that he is re-gaining arm strength after stagnating in the Indians bullpen for a month.  What is the difference in him now as compared to the past few years?  Is it purely mental, or has their been some mechanical change?  I cannot find any real information on him, or at least his recent surge.
