Axelrod apparently has a mental issue with coming out of the pen. This was documented a couple of weeks ago in the Trib, and it is somewhat backed up by his numbers last year. If he has time to prepare for a team (ie the Yankees and Red Sox starts last year), he has potential to do well. When he comes out of the pen on short rest or with little preparation, his performance has suffered.
