RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2018

Subscribe now to see our 2018 outlook.

2017

Gonsalves could be Minnesota's top pitching prospect after a dominant season at High-A and Double-A. He pitched a combined 140 innings, good for a 2.06 ERA and 9.9 K/9 between High-A Fort Myers and Double-A Chattanooga. Gonsalves sits in the low-90s with his fastball, but it plays as an above-average pitch due to his extension, high spin rate and a low arm slot that causes deception. His changeup is his best pitch, a potentially plus offering with good sink, while his slurvy breaking ball lags behind as a clear third pitch. He struggled with his fastball command and control at Double-A (4.5 BB/9), and he will need to improve his command in order to profile as more than a No. 4 starter. A fast start at Double-A could put him on track for a late-2017 big league debut.

2016

Gonsalves has become one of Minnesota's top pitching prospects after going 13-3 with a 2.01 ERA and 8.9 K/9 between Low-A and High-A. The 2013 fourth round pick offers ideal size at 6-foot-5 to go along with a low-90s fastball and an advanced mix of secondary offerings. He mowed down the competition at Low-A, and though he wasn't as dominant at High-A he was also just 20 years old. A strong showing at Double-A this season could put him on the fast track for the majors as a potential back-end starter.
