Stephen Gonsalves came on after Gabriel Moya "opened" for the Twins against the Tigers, and Gonsalves allowed two runs over 3 1/3 innings. He permitted three hits and four walks while striking out two. His record evened to 2-2, as the Twins won handily 9-3 Thursday.
Gonsalves finishes his 2018 regular season with the team with extremely subpar numbers - 6.57 ERA, 2.03 WHIP (both Blake Snell and Jacob deGrom have lower ERAs than Gonsalves' WHIP), and 16 Ks in 24 2/3 innings. Gonsalves will be undrafted in 2019.
Stephen Gonsalves appeared in Wednesday's game after Gabriel Moya opened against the Tigers, shutting them down across six innings. He allowed one hit and a walk while striking out four. His record improved to 1-2 in the 8-2 victory.
Gonsalves is starting to find his footing in the big leagues after a really rough first few appearances. Even with this nice appearance, his ERA sits at 6.75 through 21 1/3 innings. His next appearance will be against these Tigers at home.
Stephen Gonsalves could not escape the third inning in Friday's game against the Royals, getting lit up for five runs on five hits and three walks. He struck out just one in the outing. Fortunately, the Twins' offense had a nice outburst and won 10-6, leaving Gonsalves with the no-decision.
Gonsalves has been terrible since arriving to the big leagues and remains irrelevant for fantasy purposes. He will carry an 11.68 ERA through 12 1/3 innings into a start against the Yankees, if he in fact gets another start. DFS players, get your Yankees ready.
Stephen Gonsalves could not escape the fourth inning on Friday against the Rangers, surrendering six runs over 4 2/3 innings. He allowed six runs and four walks over that span while striking out none. Half of the damage came on a Nomar Mazara three-run bomb. The Twins battled back after he left the game, winning 10-7, rendering him with a no-decision.
Gonsalves is an interesting prospect for the Twins, but will not have any fantasy relevance until 2019 at the earliest. His ERA actually came down during this game, but it still sits at 9.90 through ten innings of major league work.
Stephen Gonsalves allowed four runs on seven hits and four walks over five innings on Saturday against the A's. He struck out two and took the loss, falling to 0-2.
This was certainly better than Gonsalves's first start against the White Sox, but it was still a long way from being useful in fantasy. For now, Gonsalves doesn't appear to be ready to be a fantasy contributor down the stretch, and owners can feel free to move on in all formats.
