RHP Tony Gonsolin didn't factor into the decision on Monday when he allowed one run on four hits with three walks and five strikeouts over 3 2/3 innings in the Dodgers' 3-1 win over the Phillies.
Gonsolin fared better on Monday than he did in his season debut when he walked five batters over 1 2/3 innings. He allowed an RBI single to Bryce Harper in the first inning and did issue three free passes but he was able to strike out five. He's clearly still working out the kinks after a long stint on the injured list earlier this season. He now owns a 3.38 ERA, 2.63 WHIP, and a 9:8 K/BB ratio over 5 1/3 innings. He gets the D-Backs in his next start this weekend. He should continue to get stretched out as the starts continue to add up.
RHP Tony Gonsolin labored through his season debut on Wednesday when he allowed one run on two hits with five walks and four strikeouts over 1 2/3 innings as the Dodgers beat the Pirates 2-1.
Gonsolin has obvious control issues in his season debut on Wednesday. He needed 66 pitches--33 strikes--just to get through his 1 2/3 innings. He still managed to punch out four but the five walks are tough to stomach. It could have been rust considering this was his first start of the year. He'll look to rebound in his next scheduled start against the Phillies. Fantasy managers may want to wait and see how he performs in that one before they feel comfortable starting him.
Dodgers RHP Tony Gonsolin (shoulder) will make his 2021 debut on Wednesday against the Pirates.
The 27-year-old is a priority add in leagues where he's still available. Gonsolin has always been an effective major league pitcher (2.60 ERA, 0.92 WHIP), but his role on the Dodgers has typically been uncertain. They need him now, though, which means fantasy players should feel confident about his prospects the rest of the way.
Dodgers RHP Tony Gonsolin (shoulder) has joined the Dodgers and will start against the Pirates in Week 10.
He instantly makes for an attractive streaming option against the lowly Pirates. The right-hander has always performed well despite never having a defined role on the Dodgers' pitching staff. Now, though, the expectation is that he'll be treated as a regular member of the rotation.
Dodgers RHP Tony Gonsolin (shoulder) is expected to rejoin the team's rotation next week.
Gonsolin is making one more rehab start for Triple-A Oklahoma City on Wednesday. After that he'll be ready for his 2021 debut, which will likely come against the Pirates. Gonsolin is certainly worth stashing if fantasy managers currently have an IL spot to spare.
