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. Read Past Outlooks

Strong in Tuesday's win
PLos Angeles Dodgers
September 15, 2020
Gonsolin (1-1) allowed a run on four hits and struck out two over seven innings in a win over the Padres on Tuesday.
ANALYSIS
While he wasn't fanning many batters, Gonsolin did a good job of limiting baserunners. The 26-year-old now has a 1.51 ERA, 0.79 WHIP and 30 strikeouts in 35.2 innings across seven outings (six starts). Gonsolin should remain in the rotation a bit longer with Walker Buehler (finger) out. Gonsolin's next start is expected to be Sunday in Colorado.

* 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.
