Giants' Kevin Gausman: Strong effort ends in no-decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gausman fanned nine while allowing two runs on eight hits and a walk across six innings during Thursday's 5-4 loss to the Rockies. He did not factor in the decision.

Gausman was effective in six innings of work, punching out nine Rockies before exiting with a 3-2 lead. Unfortunately for the right-hander, Sam Coonrod quickly gave up a pair of runs after replacing him, forcing Gausman to settle for a no-decision. It marked the second straight outing in which Gausman was sharp but came away winless. The 29-year-old has fanned 24 while allowing just four runs across his last 18 innings and is a strong candidate to start a game next week should the Giants sneak into the playoffs.

Giants' Kevin Gausman: Dealt tough loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gausman (3-3) took the loss Saturday against the A's after giving up one run on one hit with six strikeouts and three walks over six innings.

Oakland scratched off a run during the fourth inning, but the right-hander otherwise kept the A's in check and showed no sign of the elbow issues that resulted in him being scratched from his previous start. Gausman has a 3.76 ERA, 1.08 WHIP and 68:15 K:BB through 52.2 innings and lines up to make his final start of the regular season Thursday versus Colorado.

Giants' Kevin Gausman: Set to start Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gausman (elbow) will start Saturday's game against the Athletics, Kerry Crowley of The San Jose Mercury News reports.

Gausman (elbow) was scratched from his last start due to a right elbow issue, but he's since been cleared to take the mound for Saturday's matchup. He owns a 4.05 ERA and 1.14 WHIP with a 62:12 K:BB over 46.2 frames this season.

Giants' Kevin Gausman: May start this weekend
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gausman (elbow) had an MRI come back clean and could start against the Athletics this weekend, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

The 29-year-old was scratched from his previous start with right elbow tightness, but the MRI cleared him of any structural issues. Gausman figures to have a throwing session within the next couple days to determine if he's cleared to rejoin the rotation this weekend in Oakland.

Giants' Kevin Gausman: Dealing with elbow tightness
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gausman won't start Game 2 of Sunday's doubleheader against the Padres due to right elbow tightness, Andrew Baggarly of The Athletic reports.

According to Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle, it has yet to be determined if a trip to the injured list is necessary, and Gausman is set to undergo an MRI to determine the severity of the injury. The Giants have scheduled off days Monday and Thursday, so they won't need the full complement of the starting rotation until after next weekend. Logan Webb will take the mound in the nightcap for San Francisco.

Giants' Kevin Gausman: Fans nine in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gausman (3-2) yielded one run on three walks and two hits over six innings Monday, striking out nine and earning the win against the Diamondbacks.

Gausman found himself in a jam during the third inning, loading the bases with just one out, but he managed to escape after allowing just one run. San Francisco's offense tallied four runs in the sixth inning and that was enough support to give the 29-year-old his second straight win. He'll carry a 4.05 ERA into Saturday's road matchup with San Diego.

Giants' Kevin Gausman: Gets plenty of support in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gausman (2-2) picked up the win Tuesday against Colorado, pitching five innings and allowing two runs on two hits and one walk while striking out five.

It was a relatively easy outing for the veteran hurler given the 23 runs of support San Francisco put on the scoreboard in the rout. Gausman stuck around just long enough to qualify for the win, throwing 87 pitches and allowing only two hits -- both of which were homers off the bat of Garrett Hampson. Gausman will next face Arizona at home Monday.

Giants' Kevin Gausman: Fans six in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gausman (1-2) was charged with the loss against the Dodgers on Thursday, allowing two runs on three hits and a pair of walks while striking out six across 4.2 innings.

Gausman got the nod in the second half of Thursday's doubleheader and was pulled in the fifth after throwing his 93rd pitch. The right-hander was largely victimized by Joc Pederson, who homered in the second inning, then doubled and scored in the fourth. Otherwise, Gausman limited the Dodgers' damage despite taking his second loss of the season. The 29-year-old will carry a 4.54 ERA and 1.26 WHIP into a tough matchup at Coors Field on Tuesday.

Giants' Kevin Gausman: Not starting Game 1
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gausman is not starting Game 1 of Thursday's doubleheader against the Dodgers.

It turns out Logan Webb will get the ball for the first half of Thursday's twin bill, with Gausman likely lined up to start Game 2. Across 31 innings this season, Gausman owns a 4.65 ERA (3.12 FIP) and 42:6 K:BB.

Giants' Kevin Gausman: Starting first game of twin bill
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gausman will start the first game of Thursday's doubleheader against the Dodgers, Jorge Castillo of the Los Angeles Times reports.

Gausman was on track to start Wednesday before the Giants and Dodgers were one of the six MLB teams that elected to postpone games. He'll now return to the mound on a full week's rest after he cleared 100 pitches for the second start in a row in his last outing Aug. 20 against the Angels. The 29-year-old has been a pleasant surprise for the Giants this season, compiling a 4.65 ERA (3.12 FIP) and 42:6 K:BB in 31 innings.

August 26, 2020 09:32 PM
Giants' Kevin Gausman: Wednesday's start postponed
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gausman won't make his scheduled start Wednesday against the Dodgers as the teams elected to postpone the game in protest of the recent police shooting of Jacob Blake, Jeff Passan of ESPN.com reports.

It's the third MLB game of the night to be postponed, as the Mariners and Padres also decided to follow suit from the Brewers and Reds decision. The Giants and Dodgers could make up the contest via a doubleheader Thursday, but no schedule has been announce. Gausman seems likely to pitch Thursday, regardless.

Giants' Kevin Gausman: Earns win over Angels
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gausman (1-1) earned the win Thursday against the Angels. He allowed four runs on nine hits and a walk while fanning eight across 5.1 innings.

Gausman didn't have his best stuff and has now allowed three or more runs in four of his last six starts, pushing his ERA up to 4.65. However, the Giants' offense backed him with 10 runs, and that allowed the 29-year-old to notch his first win of the season. Gausman will try to build off this performance in his next scheduled start against the Dodgers on Aug. 26.

Giants' Kevin Gausman: Strikes out 11 in no-decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gausman did not factor in the decision against Oakland on Saturday, hurling 5.2 innings and allowing three runs on five hits and three walks while striking out 11.

Gausman was somewhat wild in the outing -- he more than doubled his season total with three walks and threw only 62 of 106 pitches for strikes -- but he also induced 19 swinging strikes and notched a season-high 11 whiffs. He was stung by a pair of home runs in the contest but kept the Giants in the game against the first-place Athletics. The right-hander sports a 4.21 ERA, 1.17 WHIP and 34:5 K:BB through 25.2 innings. His next start is lined up for Thursday at home against the Angels.

Giants' Kevin Gausman: Whiffs six in no-decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gausman allowed a run on three hits over 6.1 innings in a no-decision versus the Dodgers on Sunday. He struck out six and walked none.

Gausman was excellent in the outing, but perhaps he shouldn't have worked into the seventh inning. He allowed a one-out single to Cody Bellinger before Tyler Rogers came on in relief. It was Rogers who gave up a three-run homer three batters later to spoil Gausman's chance for his first win of the year. The 29-year-old Gausman has a 4.05 ERA, 1.10 WHIP and 23 strikeouts over 20 innings this season. He'll next take the mound Saturday versus the Athletics.

Giants' Kevin Gausman: Suffers loss Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gausman (0-1) took the loss against Colorado on Tuesday, pitching 5.1 innings and allowing four runs on five hits and one walk while striking out seven.

Gausman's third start of the season wasn't a complete disaster -- he struck out seven batters and allowed only six baserunners in 5.1 frames -- but timely Colorado hitting was enough to saddle the right-hander with his first loss of the campaign. Gausman did do a number of things to inspire confidence in the contest, including throwing 62 of 83 pitches for strikes and registering his highest pitch count of the season. The 29-year-old will face a tough challenge when he heads to Los Angeles to take on the Dodgers on Sunday in his next scheduled start.

Giants' Kevin Gausman: Unsteady in second outing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gausman allowed three runs on six hits and struck out eight batters in 4.1 innings in a no-decision versus the Padres on Thursday.

The eight whiffs are nice, but Gausman got into trouble with a wild pitch in the third inning and a parade of hits to start the fourth. He threw 48 of his 73 pitches for strikes in the appearance. The right-hander has yet to get through five innings in 2020, with a 5.40 ERA, 1.56 WHIP and 10:1 K:BB across two outings. Gausman is expected to face the Rockies at Coors Field on Tuesday.

Giants' Kevin Gausman: Starting series finale
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Giants manager Gabe Kapler said Gausman would start Thursday's game against the Padres, John Shea of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

In his first outing of the season last week against the Dodgers, Gausman worked as the bulk reliever behind an opener (Tyler Anderson), but the arrangement appears to have been more of a one-off thing. Since Gausman was limited to four innings (58 pitches) in that appearance, he may face some light restrictions with his workload while he makes his first traditional start.

Giants' Kevin Gausman: Works as primary pitcher in debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gausman came on in relief in his season debut in Friday's 9-1 loss to the Dodgers, covering four innings and giving up three runs (two earned) on six hits and a walk while striking out two.

Gausman was expected to open the season as the team's third or fourth starter, but manager Gabe Kapler made the surprising choice to deploy the right-hander as a primary pitcher behind southpaw Tyler Anderson in the Giants' second game of 2020. Since the Giants were trailing 2-1 when Gausman entered the contest in the third inning, he was spared the loss in the 58-pitch appearance. It's unclear if Gausman will be used as a traditional starter or as a primary pitcher when his turn comes up again Thursday against the Padres or Friday against the Rangers.

Giants' Kevin Gausman: Locked into middle of rotation
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gausman will work as either the Giants' No. 3 or No. 4 starter this year, Maria Guardado of MLB.com reports.

He had a 4.35 ERA, 1.07 WHIP and 7:2 K:BB in 10.1 innings (four starts) this spring. Gausman has teased with his potential for years, and this could be his last chance to make it as a starter. He has a 94-mph fastball and excellent splitter but has been unable to develop a reliably effective breaking ball.

Giants' Kevin Gausman: Signs with San Francisco
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gausman agreed to a one-year, $9 million contract with the Giants on Tuesday.

Gausman can earn a further $1 million in performance bonuses, Jon Heyman of MLB Network reports. The righty has alternated between above-average and below-average ERAs in each of his seven seasons in the league, but his 2019 campaign was a particularly poor one in that category, as he slumped to a 5.72 ERA in 102.1 innings for the Braves and Reds. His 25.3 percent strikeout rate, 7.1 percent walk rate and 3.98 FIP were all considerably more encouraging, however, so the Giants have good reason to bet on a bounceback season in Gausman's age-29 campaign.
