In this sentence it could simply mean that he is out of form, not playing as well as he normally does.
But "out-of-sorts" usually has the sense of being annoyed or upset about something, or possibly unwell. In this case he may be playing badly because he is out-of-sorts about his contract negotiations, for example, or unhappy with the coach. Without more context it's difficult to know.
