2021 Fantasy Outlook
Gonsolin missed the early portion of summer camp, so he opened the season continuing to throw at the alternate site. He was shuttled back and forth to the active roster most of August, making three scoreless starts. The righty was recalled for good in late August, making six more appearances (five starts). His 22.2 K-BB% was impressive, though a 3.80 xFIP and 3.68 SIERA indicate Gonsolin's 2.31 ERA was artificially low. A .250 BABIP and 4.0% HR/FB certainly helped. Gonsolin deploys a four-pitch mix, using a fastball averaging 95 mph about half the time and a show-me curveball. A slider against righties and a splitter against lefties fueled his 26.1 K%. Gonsolin's skills are commensurate with a top-50 starter. It's not a lock he will get the volume in the Dodgers' stacked rotation, but this is a fantasy-worthy arm. Try to find a spot for him on your staff. Read Past Outlooks

Struggles as opener
PLos Angeles Dodgers
October 27, 2020
Gonsolin pitched 1.2 innings Tuesday, allowing one run, three hits and two walks while striking out four in a no-decision against the Rays in Game 6 of the World Series.
ANALYSIS
The damage against Gonsolin was done on a solo home run off the bat of Randy Arozarena in the first inning (who else). The 26-year-old threw 30 of his 48 pitches for strikes. The right-hander had a great regular season but was unable to replicate that success in the postseason.

Stat Review
How does Tony Gonsolin compare to other starting pitchers?
This section compares his stats with all starting pitcher seasons from the previous three seasons (minimum 120 innings)*. The bar represents the player's percentile rank. For example, if the bar is halfway across, then the player falls into the 50th percentile for that stat and it would be considered average.

* Exit Velocity, Barrels/BBE %, Balls Hit 95+ MPH %, and Spin Rate are benchmarked against 2019 data (min 120 IP). See here for more exit velocity/barrels stats plus an explanation of current limitations with that data set.

2020 Fantasy Outlook
Gonsolin debuted in late June and wound up spending most of the second half in the majors. In six starts and five relief appearances, he posted a 2.93 ERA, though his underlying numbers weren't particularly impressive, as he finished with a 22.7% strikeout rate and a 9.2% walk rate. With a fastball that's touched triple digits in the past (though it averaged only 93.5 mph last season) and a strikeout rate of 28.7% over his last three seasons in the minors, there's certainly room for growth for Gonsolin. Whether that growth occurs in the rotation or the bullpen remains to be seen. He threw four pitches at least 10% of the time in 2019, but only his split-finger was graded by scouts as a strong secondary weapon. The Dodgers develop pitchers well, but they also have a large number of good ones already, so Gonsolin's fantasy value this season will depend in large part on his role.
