Gowdy, Spencer Howard and Josh Gessner were traded from the Phillies to the Rangers on Friday in exchange for Kyle Gibson, Ian Kennedy and Hans Crouse, Evan Grant of The Dallas Morning News reports.
ANALYSIS
Gowdy was fairly highly rated as an over-slot 42nd overall pick back in 2016, but he's been limited by Tommy John surgery and last year's canceled minor-league schedule to just 147 total innings as a professional. The 23-year-old owns an unremarkable 4.43 ERA in 61 frames for High-A Jersey Shore this season, though he's been hurt by a .356 BABIP, as his combination of a 24.0 percent strikeout rate and 5.7 percent walk rate is a good one.
