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

Set to pitch in Game 4
PLos Angeles Dodgers
October 11, 2021
Gonsolin said he's scheduled to pitch in Game 4 of the NLDS against the Giants on Tuesday, though he's not certain whether he'll start or come out of the bullpen, Eric Stephen of SBNation.com reports.
ANALYSIS
Manager Dave Roberts doesn't want to commit on a starter ahead of Monday's Game 3, though it appears it will be Gonsolin handling the bulk of the innings Tuesday, regardless of whether he starts or follows an opener. Clayton Kershaw (forearm) won't make a postseason return, so Gonsolin lines up as the Dodgers' No. 4 starter behind Walker Buehler, Julio Urias and Max Scherzer for the duration of the playoff run.

* 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.
