I don't know if that's the case or not, but I do remember reading about him being ill a couple of years ago.
Yes, he had an extremely rare blood disease that makes him vulnerable to internal bleeding. Eventually he had his spleen removed in 2010. This basically cost him the 2010 and 2011 seasons in terms of his development.
