RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
There was no outlook written for Austin Gomber.
While Gomber, a fourth round pick in 2014, posted solid numbers in 11 starts at short season ball in 2014, his fielding-independent stats (particularly a 17.4 percent K rate), suggested his excellent run prevention was a bit of a fluke. However, he looks like a legitimate prospect after a stellar full season at Low-A Peoria, where he not only upped his K-rate to 26 percent (thanks to a slight uptick in velocity), but he also lowered his walk rate from 8.7 percent to 6.3 percent. The 6-foot-5 lefty has an above average changeup and a slider that can generate whiffs on the right day, to go with a low-90s fastball. Given his height and handedness, thatís a good enough arsenal to make it as a No. 3 starter down the road. The one knock is that he will be getting his first taste of High-A as a 23-year-old, but he offers more upside than his age and level suggest.
