Gonsalves’ pitching style seems to have finally met its match in the form of Triple-A hitters. He missed the first six weeks of the season with a shoulder injury, but finished in the top 10 in the Southern League in FIP (2.88), WHIP (1.03) and K-BB% (20.7). Always labeled as a pitcher whose minor-league numbers oversell the quality of his stuff, Gonsalves may not possess a plus pitch in his arsenal, although his changeup is close. He gets by with a low-90s fastball that he features at the top of the zone, which helped him lead all Southern League pitchers with a whopping 31.1 percent infield flyball rate. When he got to Triple-A, his IFFB% dipped to 24.1 percent while his line-drive rate and HR/FB spiked. In other words, more advanced hitters forced him to bring his average fastball down and then did damage. He will return to Triple-A, but it’s hard to envision which adjustments he could make that will allow for him to profile as anything better than a No. 4 starter.

  2. Stephen Gonsalves 2017 Preseason Outlook
    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.
  3. Stephen Gonsalves 2016 Preseason Outlook
    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.
