Gohara (shoulder) was released by the Angels on Monday, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports. Once a top prospect in the Mariners' and Braves' organizations, Gohara has dealt with a long list of arm injuries over the last few years, which has negatively impacted his development. As of early March, he was still months away from being able to return from a shoulder injury.
Gohara (shoulder) was reassigned to minor-league camp Tuesday. Gohara was invited to big-league camp this season despite recovering from a shoulder injury that will keep him from throwing in games until at least May. The southpaw was once a promising prospect but missed all of the 2019 campaign due to the shoulder issue.
Gohara (shoulder) is months away from being able to pitch in games, Jeff Fletcher of the Orange County Register reports. He had to settle for a minor-league deal with the Angels after getting released by the Braves in August of 2019. Gohara has a big arm in a big 6-foot-3 frame, but he has not thrown a pitch in a game since 2018. It is unclear if the Angels will attempt to stretch him out or develop him as a reliever once he is healthy. His command and third-pitch changeup were not starter quality at the time of his injury.
Gohara (shoulder) signed a minor-league contract with the Angels on Wednesday, Roster Roundup reports. Gohara was let go by the Braves in early August and has yet to pitch at any level in 2019 due to a shoulder injury. The 23-year-old was once a highly touted prospect, but he had a 4.94 ERA and 1.27 WHIP at Triple-A last season and allowed 13 runs over 19.2 frames in the majors. The specifics of Gohara's injury remain unclear, but there's been no indication he'll be able to take the mound this season.
Gohara (shoulder) was released by the Braves on Friday. Gohara had some prospect hype in the fairly recent past, but now he's a 23-year-old free agent. He's seen his stock fall precipitously after a pair of injury-filled seasons. Shoulder issues have prevented him from throwing a pitch at any level this season, and it's possible things are worse than they'd appeared given that the Braves have now given up on him entirely. Whichever team ends up with him will be getting a pitcher who is still quite young and who showed considerable promise as recently as 2017, when he recorded a 2.62 ERA and a 28.4 percent strikeout rate across the three highest levels of the minors.
