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
Not beginning season in rotation
PLos Angeles Dodgers
March 9, 2020
Gonsolin was not among the starters named by Dave Roberts on Monday, Jorge Castillo of the Los Angeles Times reports.
ANALYSIS
Gonsolin has started two games during spring training and pitched three scoreless innings with three strikeouts, but he won't begin the season in the starting rotation. However, the right-hander has shown versatility in the past and could be considered for a spot in the major-league bullpen to open the season. Gonsolin made his major-league debut in 2019, recording a 2.93 ERA and 1.02 WHIP over 11 appearances (six starts).
