    • Braves' Luiz Gohara: Fans six in no-decision
      By RotoWire Staff

      Gohara allowed four runs on six hits and a pair of walks while striking out six in six innings Friday against the Marlins, but did not factor into the decision. The pitching prospect was spotted five runs right out of the gate by Atlanta's offense, but a shaky seventh inning for him and the bullpen ultimately spelled the team's doom. Prior to the pitching breakdown, Gohara fired five scoreless innings and allowed just two baserunners in that span. The 21-year-old showed promise during his short stint in the majors, as his 2.79 FIP and 9.5 K/9 suggest, but his massive jump from High-A to the big leagues this season could get him sent back to the minors to start the 2018 campaign if his spring numbers are less than stellar.

    • Gohara (1-3) took the loss Sunday against Philadelphia despite allowing only one run on five hits and two walks with a career-high nine strikeouts over seven innings. Gohara came in with a 6.06 ERA and 1.53 WHIP through three starts, but he turned in a masterful performance despite absorbing the loss as his team was shut out by opposing starter Nick Pivetta and the Philadelphia bullpen. The only damage against the rookie lefty came on a solo homer off the bat of Maikel Franco. He'll look to build on this effort in his final start of the season Friday in Miami.

    • Braves' Luiz Gohara: Knocked around by Nationals
      By RotoWire Staff

      Gohara (1-2) took the loss against the Nationals on Tuesday after allowing four runs on 11 hits over 6.1 innings. He struck out four. Gohara bested the Nationals six days ago, but wasn't able to replicate that success this time around. The first four hitters in the Nationals' lineup accounted for a majority of the damage Tuesday, collecting eight of the 11 hits off Gohara and driving in all four of the runs off of the 21-year-old. The southpaw has now allowed 11 earned runs in his first three big-league starts and will look to rebound in his upcoming outing against the Phillies on Sunday.

    • Braves' Luiz Gohara: Notches first big-league win
      By RotoWire Staff

      Gohara (1-1) collected his first major-league win after allowing two runs (one earned) on six hits while striking out six batters in six innings Wednesday against the Nationals. Gohara turned in a much better sophomore start after struggling in his debut, and the rookie was able to come away with his first big league victory despite going up against Nationals ace Max Scherzer. The 21-year-old displayed much better control Wednesday, issuing no free passes after walking four batters in four innings during his debut. With the Braves operating a six-man rotation and working with an off-day Monday, Gohara will make his next scheduled start on Sept. 20 against the Nationals on two extra days of rest.

    • Gohara (0-1) took the loss in his major-league debut, giving up six runs on four hits and four walks while striking out six over four innings against the Rangers in the first game of Wednesday's doubleheader. The 21-year-old lefty flashed an impressive arsenal of pitches, inducing 16 swinging strikes on 83 total throws, but he failed to locate with consistency. He issued two walks, uncorked a wild pitch and gave up two extra-base hits in a four-run fourth inning. Gohara will continue on in the Braves' six-man rotation -- a road matchup against the Nationals is next on the docket -- and he should provide useful strikeout totals, but those strikeouts may come at the expense of fantasy owners' ratios.
