Kevin Gausman stumbles, Jays fall to Rays 5-4

Kevin Gausman had a middling outing in Saturday's 5-4 loss to the Rays.

Fantasy Impact

He allowed three earned runs on eight hits and one walk while striking out six over six innings. This performance slightly dents his already shaky season stats, pushing his ERA to an unimpressive 4.89 and WHIP to 1.51. Despite a decent strikeout rate of 9.1 K/9, Gausman's high BABIP of .372 suggests he's been somewhat unlucky, but it also indicates that hitters are making solid contact. His 3.61 FIP suggests a better underlying performance than his ERA reflects, yet fantasy managers might still be wary. Given the inconsistency, Gausman remains a risky play in fantasy lineups, particularly in shallower leagues.

Kevin Gausman struggles, Jays still triumph over Twins

Kevin Gausman had a rough outing in Saturday's high-scoring affair against the Twins.

Fantasy Impact

He surrendered six earned runs on 10 hits and two walks while striking out six over just three innings. Despite Gausman's struggles, the Blue Jays managed to secure a 10-8 victory. This performance inflates his ERA to 4.95 and WHIP to 1.51 for the season, continuing a trend of inconsistency marked by a high BABIP of .364. His strikeout numbers remain solid at 9.2 K/9, but fantasy managers should be wary of his volatility in matchups, especially given the current trajectory of his peripheral stats like FIP at 3.92. Gausman remains a risky play in fantasy lineups, particularly in leagues that heavily penalize for earned runs and hits.

Kevin Gausman shines in Blue Jays' victory over Nationals

Kevin Gausman delivered a stellar performance on Saturday, holding the Nationals to zero earned runs over 5 1/3 innings while striking out eight.

Fantasy Impact

He allowed just three hits and two walks in the 6-3 win. This outing marks a significant step forward for Gausman, whose season ERA improved to 3.78 and WHIP to 1.29. His ability to maintain a high strikeout rate (8.4 K/9) and a solid strikeout-to-walk ratio (3.88) continues to make him a valuable asset in fantasy leagues. The improvement in his fielding independent pitching to 3.77 suggests that his underlying metrics are strong, and his performance should stabilize if he maintains this form. Fantasy managers should consider Gausman a reliable starting option, especially in matchups where his strikeout potential can be maximized.

Kevin Gausman's Grit Not Enough in Tight Loss

Kevin Gausman pitched 6 2/3 innings, allowing zero earned runs on seven hits and one walk while striking out two in Tuesday's 3-2 defeat to the Royals.

Fantasy Impact

Despite a strong performance that should have been a win on most days, Gausman's season continues to be a mixed bag with a high ERA of 5.57 and a WHIP of 1.57, which are concerning for fantasy managers. His low strikeout count in this game also continues a troubling trend for a pitcher who has historically offered more in this category. Fantasy managers should remain cautious, as his inconsistency makes him a risky play at the moment.
