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

Lasts 3.2 innings
PLos Angeles Dodgers
June 15, 2021
Gonsolin allowed one run on four hits and three walks while striking out five over 3.2 innings against the Phillies on Monday. He did not factor into the decision.
ANALYSIS
Gonsolin looked a bit more comfortable in his second start back since returning from the injured list. He had a rocky first inning in which he gave up a run after allowing two hits and two walks but settled in pretty nicely thereafter. The 27-year-old still struggled a bit with his command, as he needed 81 pitches to get through 3.2 innings and has eight walks over 5.1 innings so far this year. He'll take a 3.38 ERA into a favorable matchup against the plummeting Diamondbacks this weekend.

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.

* 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.
