Kevin Gausman signs one-year deal with Giants

Kevin Gausman has agreed to a one-year deal with the San Francisco Giants, worth $9 million.

Fantasy Impact

Gausman, a five-year veteran, has seen stretches of greatness in his time with the Orioles and Braves. He finished last season with a 10.03/9 strikeout rate, a career-high. A move to the pitcher-friendly confines of Oracle Park should prove beneficial to Gausman's fantasy value.

Kevin Gausman non-tendered by Reds

Starting pitcher Kevin Gausman was non-tendered by the Reds on Monday, making him a free agent.

Fantasy Impact

Gausman pitched to a 5.72 ERA in 2019 with the Braves and Reds, so this is not a shocking development. With the Reds looking like they are going to spend big money elsewhere on the free agent market, it makes sense for them to cut Gausman loose as they look for upgrades. For other cost-conscious franchises, Gausman could be an intriguing buy-low opportunity.

Kevin Gausman struggles in loss Monday

Kevin Gausman (3-9) took the loss Monday against the Cubs, allowing three runs on three hits no walks while striking out two in two innings.

Fantasy Impact

Gausman was not expected to work deep into the game Monday, but after allowing a three-run home run, Dave Bell gave him a quick hook. Gausman will likely return to a bullpen role, where he's posted a 4.02 ERA in 11 appearances with the Reds.

Kevin Gausman lands with Reds on waiver claim

Kevin Gausman was acquired by the Reds from the Braves after claiming him off waivers.

Fantasy Impact

Gausman’s move to the Reds came out of nowhere, as there were no prior reports that Atlanta had waived him. The Reds will pick up his remaining $9.35 million contract and will have him under team control through his final year of arbitration in 2020. He owns a 6.19 ERA, 1.49 WHIP, with 85 strikeouts in 80 innings for the Braves this season. Gausman will most likely enter the Reds rotation or be used as multi-innings reliever.

Kevin Gausman allows five runs in loss Friday

Braves starter Kevin Gausman allowed five earned runs on eight hits and two walks while striking out 4 2/3 innings in a loss to the Reds on Friday. The loss drops him to 3-7 on the season.

Fantasy Impact

Gausman has now allowed 11 earned runs over his last two starts and has lost four of his last five decisions. In six starts since the end of May, his ERA has jumped from 4.33 to 6.19. His next start is scheduled to come against the hot-hitting Twins in Minnesota, and he should be avoided except in the deepest of formats.
