Braves' Kevin Gausman: Fans 10 in rehab start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gausman (foot) allowed two earned runs on six hits and one walk while striking out 10 over six innings in a rehab start for Triple-A Gwinnett on Tuesday.

This was Gausman's third and presumably final rehab appearance. He threw 104 pitches, with the only real blemish a homer he allowed to Logan Morrison in the second inning. Look for Gausman to slot back into the Braves' starting rotation Sunday against Washington, supplanting Bryse Wilson.

Braves' Kevin Gausman: Advances rehab to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gausman (foot) will make a rehab start for Triple-A Gwinnett on Tuesday.

Gausman has missed over a month with plantar fasciitis. He's made two rehab starts so far, allowing four runs (three earned) in 11 innings while recording a 9:1 K:BB. He already reached six innings in his most recent rehab outing, so there's a good chance Tuesday's appearance will be his final one before he's back in the big leagues.

Braves' Kevin Gausman: Making rehab start at Double-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gausman (foot) will advance his rehab assignment to Double-A Mississippi on Thursday.

Gausman allowed three runs on five hits in five innings of work in his first rehab start for High-A Florida, striking out six while walking one. He's been out for exactly a month but doesn't appear to be far from returning, as he threw 72 pitches in his previous start and should surpass that number Thursday.

Braves' Kevin Gausman: Set for rehab assignment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gausman (foot) will start a rehab assignment Friday at High-A Florida.

Gausman took part in a simulated game Sunday and is now set for the final stage of his rehab work. The 28-year-old could make a couple rehab starts in the minors and rejoin the Braves shortly after the All-Star break. A return to the starting rotation certainly isn't guaranteed given Gausman's 6.21 ERA and 1.51 WHIP through 13 starts.

Braves' Kevin Gausman: Ready for simulated game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gausman (foot) will take part in a simulated game Sunday, Gabe Burns of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

This is the first update on Gausman's status since he landed on the injured list earlier this month, but his recovery has apparently been going as planned, as no setbacks have been reported. The Braves figure to determine Gausman's next step after observing him Sunday.

Braves' Kevin Gausman: Lands on injured list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gausman was placed on the 10-day injured list Tuesday due to plantar fasciitis in his right foot.

Gausman was pulled after allowing four runs (two earned) over 2.1 innings Monday night, and it seems likely that his foot issue played a role in his disastrous outing. A.J. Minter was recalled from Triple-A Gwinnett in a corresponding move.

Braves' Kevin Gausman: Gives up four runs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gausman gave up four runs (two earned) on five hits and one walk while striking out four through 2.1 innings in a no-decision against the Pirates on Monday.

A horrific third inning that featured his own throwing error and a three-run home run led to the early exit for Gausman. The 28-year-old has struggled mightily through 13 starts with a 2-5 record and a 6.21 ERA. Gausman is lined up to make another start Saturday against the Phillies, but he may need to perform well in that outing to stick in the rotation thereafter. The newly acquired Dallas Keuchel could be ready to join the big club as soon as next week.

Braves' Kevin Gausman: Lit up by Pirates
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gausman (2-5) was charged with seven runs on 12 hits over five innings during Wednesday's 7-4 loss at Pittsburgh. He struck out three and walked none.

Gausman had a disastrous second inning as he gave up five runs on seven hits while even having the benefit of a runner being thrown out at home to end the frame. The 28-year-old has allowed a whopping 15 runs in his last two starts but will have the chance for a rebound effort against the Pirates on Monday.

Braves' Kevin Gausman: Disastrous outing against Nats
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gausman (2-4) took the loss in Wednesday's 14-4 drubbing at the hands of the Nationals, surrendering eight runs on eight hits and two walks in only one-plus inning. He struck out one.

Remarkably, Gausman didn't serve up a homer amidst the carnage -- the Nats simply kept the line moving with a parade of line-drive singles, scoring four runs in the first inning without an extra-base hit. The right-hander came into the evening with a 4.33 ERA and staggered out of it with a 5.56 mark, but he'll look to rebound next Wednesday in Pittsburgh.

Braves' Kevin Gausman: Tosses another quality start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gausman threw six innings and allowed three runs on four hits and two walks while striking out six against the Giants on Thursday. He did not factor into the decision.

The quality start was Gausman's third in a row following a four-game stretch in which he failed to complete more than 5.1 innings. In his last three outings, he has allowed only six earned runs in 18 innings and has whiffed 16 batters. He'll face the Nationals at home on Wednesday in his next scheduled start.

Braves' Kevin Gausman: Yields two runs in no-decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gausman allowed two runs on six hits with four strikeouts and two walks across six innings in a no-decision against the Brewers on Saturday.

The right-hander yielded two runs in the first inning but then really only ran into trouble in one of his final five frames. That trouble came in the third, but Gausman worked out of a bases-loaded jam. He didn't get the win but improved most of his other numbers -- 4.31 ERA, 1.25 WHIP and 50 strikeouts in 48 innings this season. Gausman will make his next start against the Giants on Thursday.

Braves' Kevin Gausman: Drops suspension appeal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gausman dropped his appeal of a five-game suspension and will begin serving the ban Sunday.

Major League Baseball first levied the suspension on Gausman on May 6 after he was ejected from his start against the Marlins three days earlier for intentionally throwing at Miami pitcher Jose Urena. Gausman chose to fight the suspension immediately and proceeded to make a pair of starts, then dropped the appeal ahead of Monday's off day. The break in the schedule will allow the Braves to get by with a four-man rotation until Gausman is eligible to return to action for a start Saturday against the Brewers.

Braves' Kevin Gausman: Grabs second win with quality start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gausman (2-3) picked up the win in Saturday's 6-4 victory over the Diamondbacks, giving up one run on five hits and two walks over six innings while striking out six.

The right-hander threw 59 of 84 pitches for strikes in delivering his third quality start in eight trips to the mound. Gausman will take a 4.50 ERA and 46:17 K:BB through 42 innings into his next outing Friday, at home against the Brewers.

Braves' Kevin Gausman: Handed loss in short outing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gausman (1-3) took the loss Monday, giving up five runs (three earned) on seven hits and four walks over 4.1 innings while striking out six as Atlanta was downed 5-3 by the Dodgers.

Slapped with a five-game suspension prior to the start of the game that he immediately appealed, Gausman's focus may have been disrupted, and even one of the unearned runs was a product of his own throwing error. The right-hander will take a 5.00 ERA and 40:15 K:BB through 36 innings into his next start, although when that outing happens will depend on how quickly his appeal gets heard. Gausman tentatively lines up for his next start Saturday against the Diamondbacks if his appeal situation isn't resolved by then.

Braves' Kevin Gausman: Handed five-game ban
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gausman was suspended five games and fined an undisclosed amount Monday for throwing behind Marlins pitcher Jose Urena in his previous start, 680 The Fan Atlanta reports.

Gausman is appealing the suspension and is still expected to start Monday against the Dodgers. He can time his appeal such that the suspension amounts to nothing more than an extra day of rest if he drops his appeal following Monday's game.

May 5, 2019 11:28 PM
Braves' Kevin Gausman: Scheduled to start Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gausman will start Monday against the Dodgers, Kevin McAlpin of 680 The Fan Atlanta reports.

Gausman will pitch on two days' rest after being ejected for throwing behind Jose Urena just 28 pitches into his previous start Friday against the Marlins. He'll bump Max Fried back to Tuesday and Mike Foltynewicz back to Wednesday.

May 3, 2019 11:08 PM
Braves' Kevin Gausman: Ejected in second inning
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gausman was ejected from Friday's game against the Marlins in the second inning for throwing behind Jose Urena, 680 The Fan Atlanta reports.

Prior to exiting, Gausman allowed one run on one hit and one walk while striking out one across 1.2 innings. Seeing as the right-hander only threw 28 pitches before being tossed, manager Brian Snitker said he could be used sooner than his next scheduled start, per 680 The Fan Atlanta.

Braves' Kevin Gausman: Turns in shaky outing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gausman allowed five runs on five hits and two walks while striking out five over five innings in Sunday's no-decision against the Rockies.

Both starting pitchers struggled to find it in the series finale, and while Gausman was spotted an early 3-0 lead, he'd quickly surrender it during a four-run third inning. The right-hander has yet to find consistency in 2019, as he's given up four or more runs in three of his five starts. Gausman owns a 4.80 ERA with 33 strikeouts over 30 innings this season.

April 24, 2019 10:16 AM
Braves' Kevin Gausman: Falters in sixth inning
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gausman (1-2) took the loss against the Reds on Tuesday by allowing six runs (five earned) on eight hits across 5.1 innings. He struck out six and walked two.

Gausman was in line for the victory to begin the sixth inning but two hits, an error and some shoddy bullpen work ended up handing him the loss. The 28-year-old has a 3.96 ERA, 1.00 WHIP and 28:8 K:BB over 25 innings heading into Sunday's start against the Rockies.

April 17, 2019 11:32 PM
Braves' Kevin Gausman: Turns in seven strong
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gausman allowed two earned runs on three hits and a walk while striking out 10 Wednesday against the Diamondbacks. He did not factor into the decision.

Gausman controlled the strike zone well throughout his start, beginning 17 of the 25 batters he faced with a strike while also generating 13 called strikes and 19 swinging strikes. While he stumbled a bit in his last start, Gausman has looked strong in two of his first three outings, going seven innings in each and allowing a combined two earned runs. Overall, he's racked up 22 strikeouts while posting a 2.75 ERA and 0.76 WHIP across 19.2 innings this season.
