2019 Fantasy Outlook
Gossett made just five poor big-league starts (and a handful of Triple-A appearances) before being shut down with elbow tightness in early June. He was making progress in his recovery but suffered a setback in late July which led to Tommy John surgery. A typical recovery timeline would give him at least a shot at returning late this season, though he probably won't have time to build up as a starter. Based on his performances thus far in the majors, he doesn't appear to be a great loss for the Athletics, as his ERA sits at an unimpressive 5.91 through his first 23 big-league starts. He's shown fine control (7.6% walk rate) and generated a league-average number of groundballs (42.9%), but a strikeout rate of just 16.3% puts a cap on his upside. Read Past Outlooks
Successful live BP session
POakland Athletics
Elbow
August 25, 2019
Gossett (elbow) threw a 30-pitch live batting practice session Friday at High-A Stockton, Martin Gallegos of MLB.com reports. "Just getting back into it, getting back to facing hitters," Gossett said. "I got to throw all my pitches and got some swings and misses on a couple of breaking balls. It was fun to get back in the swing of what a game would feel like."
ANALYSIS
The session marked Gossett's first taste of facing live hitters since August 2018 Tommy John surgery. The rehabbing veteran is slated to throw several more live batting practice sessions before eventually progressing to simulated games, and if all continues to go well, he plans on playing in the Arizona Fall League to continue building up his arm ahead of spring training 2020.

Past Fantasy Outlooks

2017
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.
A second-round pick in 2014, Gossett truly emerged as a legitimate prospect in 2016, starting the year at High-A and deftly navigating difficult pitching environments to finish the season at Triple-A. He spent the bulk of the year in the Texas League, where he posted an excellent 94:25 K:BB in 94 innings (16 starts). Gossett's four-pitch mix includes a fastball that sits in the low-90s, a solid low-80s changeup, a show-me curveball and a recently-developed cutter. It is not the repertoire of a frontline starter, but his above average command allows everything to play up to the point that he reasonably projects as a No. 4 starter. He should spend the bulk of 2017 with Triple-A Nashville, and if he can have success once again in another hitters' league, Gossett should get a chance to test his stuff in the big league rotation sometime in the second half.
