Manager Brian Snitker said Gohara (shoulder) is pitching at extended spring training, David O'Brien of The Athletic reports. Gohara has yet to pitch in a game as he continues to work his way back from a shoulder injury. The southpaw should be considered out indefinitely.
Gohara (shoulder) tossed a live batting-practice session Wednesday, David O'Brien of The Athletic reports. After recently completing a pair of bullpen sessions, Gohara took another step forward in his recovery from a left shoulder issue by facing hitters. Assuming he reports no ill effects following Thursday's team off-day, Gohara will likely make his Grapefruit League debut at some point over the weekend.
Gohara (shoulder) will throw a live batting practice session Wednesday, 680 The Fan Atlanta reports. Gohara has been brought along slowly this spring, but the report notes that if all goes well during Wednesday's session, Gohara could get into a game as soon as this weekend.
Gohara (shoulder) has been throwing but is not yet ready for game action, Mark Bowman of MLB.com reports. Gohara had some hype heading into last season, but his campaign was ruined by injuries. He threw just 77.2 innings overall, with only 19.2 of those coming in the big leagues. A sore shoulder affected him late in the season and is apparently still a factor. The young lefty is theoretically in the battle for the Braves' fifth starter job, but he will need time on the mound in spring training to stand out from a crowd of similarly interesting young arms.
Gohara (shoulder) rejoined the rotation at Triple-A Gwinnett on Thursday, tossing 3.2 shutout innings in 4-2 win over Buffalo. He gave up a hit and walked one while striking out three in the outing. Gwinnett was conservative with Gohara's workload after a two-and-a-half-week absence due to the sore left shoulder, as the 22-year-old tossed only 54 pitches (31 strikes) before departing. Unless Gohara reports complications over the next couple of days, he should push up his pitch count in his upcoming start for Gwinnett. Gohara seems likely to rejoin the big club in September when rosters expand, but he's expected to be deployed in a relief role with Anibal Sanchez thriving as the Braves' No. 5 starter.
