2018 Fantasy Outlook
Someone forgot to tell Gossett that the Coliseum in Oakland is supposed to suppress home runs. The right-hander gave up nine long balls in just 32.2 innings at home last season, resulting in an ugly 2.07 HR/9 overall. In another era, we'd look at his 21.1 percent HR/FB rate and scream "regression," but dramatic improvement is far from a given. Gossett allowed hard contact on one-third of his batted balls and independent, third-party research suggests there have indeed been changes to the baseball (of course MLB denies it). He struggled to miss bats last season, managing just a 7.1 K/9, and his below-average 56.8 percent first-pitch strike rate points to impending regression with his walk rate (3.1 BB/9). Gossett figures to get another look in the starting rotation, but there's not enough here to warrant an add outside of AL-only formats. Read Past Outlooks
