RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
There was no outlook written for Mike Gosling.
Gosling competed for a spot in Arizona's rotation last spring but lost to Brad Halsey and started the year at Triple-A. He came up in mid-summer as an injury replacement for some starts, however. The ERA looks OK, but that WHIP is below average, and his really low strikeout rate is a red flag. He could compete for a rotation spot again in 2006, but there are better options available at Gosling's price.
Gosling did just enough in his late-season stint with the Diamondbacks to earn a shot at the 2005 starting rotation in spring training. Remember that his 2003 season was affected by a sore shoulder that required offseason surgery to repair a torn labrum, he was basically rehabbing in the minors through most of 2004, so don't dismiss him based on his Triple-A numbers over the last two seasons. Of all the pitchers you've never heard of on Arizona's spring roster, Gosling is the one with the best chance of putting up decent numbers as a major league starter in 2005.
Gosling had an ugly year at Triple-A in 2003 and had to have offseason surgery to repair a torn labrum in his throwing shoulder. He's still a prospect (Arizona added Gosling to their 40-man roster over the winter), but don't think about putting him on your draft sheets until you see how his shoulder responds.
The former Team USA pitcher went 14-5, 3.13 at Double-A El Paso in 2002, with 115 strikeouts in 167 innings. If there's a spot open in Arizona's rotation at the beginning of spring training, Gosling will be in contention for the opening. It's more likely, however, that Gosling spends most of the season at Triple-A. He's highly regarded in Arizona's organization and could be a decent keeper league pickup.
