Kevin Gausman is an interesting case study of how surface and underlying stats can do weird things. In 2021, he had a 2.81 ERA but a 3.28 xFIP; in 2022, it was a 3.35 ERA and 2.75 xFIP. The difference lay entirely in his BABIP, which did its expected jump from an impossible .274 to an outrageous .363. Gausman throws his split-finger fastball almost 35% of the time, which is his best pitch but also the one that can lead to this type of BABIP jump. All of that is to say that the 31-year-old cannot be counted on for exceptional, ace-like numbers. Still, he will be a solid SP2 in any fantasy team rotation, giving you strikeouts and protecting your ratios, but the variance will always play into his overall numbers.

Kevin Gausman posts quality start on Monday

Kevin Gausman pitched 6 1/3 innings allowing two earned runs on six hits and a walk while striking out seven during Toronto's win over New York on Monday.

Fantasy Impact

All of the damage done was via a first-inning Gleyber Torres sacrifice fly and then an Isiah Kiner-Falefa solo shot in the second inning. Otherwise, Gausman was sharp as he generated 14 swinging strikes, seven strikeouts and a solid 33 percent CSW on 94 pitches. He's been a bit more inconsistent as the season has worn on but overall Gausman has been great for the Blue Jays this year. On the season he has a 12-10 record with a 3.30 ERA and 1.23 WHIP with an excellent 201:28 strikeout-to-walk ratio over 30 starts. He's scheduled for at least one more start, coming against the Red Sox on Sunday.
