Gayhart has a 2.08 ERA with a 18:4 K:BB in 17 innings since being demoted to High-A Lakeland. He had a 6.06 ERA with a 28:20 K:BB in 33 innings for Double-A Erie.
Gayhart was a 13th round pick out of Rice in 2008. He can hit 93 MPH, but his slider and changeup are shaky and made it hard for him to survive in Double-A. He will try again at that level next year, and could be a relief asset in Detroit if he makes progress.
