Gohara was placed on the 7-day disabled list Wednesday with a left biceps injury. Gohara suffered a biceps injury during his Double-A debut, and it appears the injury will force him onto the disabled list. He had a 1.98 ERA and 39 strikeouts across 36.1 innings with High-A Florida before him promotion to Double-A. The severity of his injury still isn't known, though his status should be updated once the Braves release more information.
Gohara exited his start at Double-A Mississippi on Monday with a left biceps injury, Michael Peng of MiLB.com reports. The Braves haven't provided further word on the severity of the injury. After turning in a 1.98 ERA and 39 strikeouts over 36.1 innings at High-A Florida, Gohara was promoted to the Southern League, but lasted just two innings in his debut for Mississippi before departing.
Gohara was promoted to Double-A Mississippi on Wednesday. The big lefty posted a 1.98 ERA, 1.18 WHIP and 39:10 K:BB in 36.1 innings with High-A Florida prior to the promotion. His dominant fastball/slider combo allowed him to handle lower-level hitters with ease. How he fares against Double-A hitters should tell us quite a bit about how far he has come with his changeup and command. Gohara is one of the top left-handed pitching prospects in the game.
Gohara scattered four hits and a walk while striking out seven over seven scoreless innings for High-A Florida in Friday's 3-1 win over Clearwater. The former Mariners prospect is off to an outstanding start to 2017, posting a 1.29 ERA and 20:4 K:BB through 21 innings. The low walk rate is particularly noteworthy, as finding the strike zone is something Gohara has struggled with in his minor-league career. If the imposing 20-year-old has begun to harness his strong fastball/slider combo, he could make his Double-A debut sometime later this season and provide the Braves with yet another potential frontline starter in their pipeline.
Gohara was traded to the Braves on Wednesday as part of a four-player deal, Greg Johns of MLB.com reports. The Mariners received outfielder Mallex Smith and reliever Shae Simmons in the deal while the Braves also picked up pitching prospect Thomas Burrows, but Gohara is the headliner in the trade from the Atlanta side. The 20-year-old left-hander was regarded by many as a top-10 prospect in the Mariners system after he delivered a 1.81 ERA and 81 strikeouts across 69.2 innings between Low-A Clinton and High-A Everett last season. Though he lacks the size of a front-line starter, Gohara sports an effective mid-90s fastball and sharp slider that could make him a potential rotation option for the Braves within a few seasons.
