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.

Kevin Gausman: Heads to free agency
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gausman was non-tendered by the Reds on Monday, Bobby Nightengale of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

Gausman didn't look himself during the 2019 campaign, accruing a 5.72 ERA and 1.42 WHIP with a 114:32 K:BB over 102.1 innings of work across stops with Atlanta and Cincinnati. Despite this, he should get a big-league deal elsewhere after failing to agree on a pact with the Reds.

Reds' Kevin Gausman: Over illness
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gausman (illness) rejoined the Reds and will be available out of the bullpen for Sunday's game against the Mets, C. Trent Rosecrans of The Athletic reports.

Gausman was one of at least five Reds players who was sent home ahead of Saturday's contest while battling flu-like symptoms. Only Gausman will return to action ahead of the series finale, but the other ill players should benefit from the team off day coming Monday. Gausman's last appearance came as a starter back on Sept. 16, but the Reds' current pitching schedule doesn't call for him to make any additional turns through the rotation during the final week of the season.

Reds' Kevin Gausman: Out sick
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gausman was sent home Saturday with flu-like symptoms, C. Trent Rosecrans of The Athletic reports.

Gausman was sent home sick along with Freddy Galvis, Michael Lorenzen, Robert Stephenson and Josh VanMeter. Depending on how they feel Sunday, some or all of them could stay away from the club until Tuesday.

Reds' Kevin Gausman: Struggles in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gausman (3-9) gave up three runs on three hits and no walks while striking out two through two innings to take the loss against the Cubs on Monday.

Gausman wasn't expected to pitch deep in his first start with the Reds, and he allowed a three-run home run in the first frame that handed him the loss. Gausman had a 4.02 ERA in 11 appearances as a reliever for the Reds coming into this game and will likely return to his bullpen role. The 28-year-old has a 5.99 ERA with 109 strikeouts through 28 appearances this season.

Reds' Kevin Gausman: Picking up Monday's start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gausman is slated to start Monday's game against the Cubs, Bobby Nightengale of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

The Reds have already been running out a five-man rotation lately, but manager David Bell may have wanted to build in an extra day of rest for the team's other starters while the season winds down. Enter Gausman, who has made all 11 of his appearances with the Reds out of the bullpen since being scooped up off waivers in early August. Gausman hasn't covered more than two innings in any of his outings with Cincinnati, so even if he performs well Monday, he may struggle to work deep enough into the contest to factor into the decision.

Reds' Kevin Gausman: Throws immaculate inning
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gausman threw an 'immaculate inning' Sunday against the Cardinals, striking out the side on nine pitches.

Gausman has thrown seven innings over four games with the Reds, all in relief, and has allowed two earned runs while striking out 11 and walking two. In this very brief sample, Gausman seems well suited to relief work.

Reds' Kevin Gausman: Lands with Reds on waiver claim
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Reds acquired Gausman from the Braves on Monday after claiming him off waivers, sources tell Jeff Passan of ESPN.com.

Gausman's move to Cincinnati seemingly comes out of nowhere, as there weren't any prior reports suggesting that Atlanta had exposed him to waivers. In any case, the Reds will pick up the remaining money he's owed on his one-year, $9.35 million contract and will have him under control through his final year of arbitration in 2020. The 28-year-old righty -- whose last start came against the Reds, incidentally -- posted a 6.19 ERA and 1.49 WHIP while striking out 85 in 80 frames for Atlanta this season. According to Jim Bowden of The Athletic, the Reds plan on using Gausman as a reliever.

Braves' Kevin Gausman: Roughed up by Reds
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gausman (3-7) took the loss Friday as Atlanta was downed 5-2 by the Reds, giving up five runs on eight hits and two walks while striking out five over 4.2 innings.

The right-hander was slow out of the gates once again, serving up a two-run shot to Joey Votto in the first inning, and Atlanta never climbed out of that hole. Gausman will carry a 6.19 ERA and 85:27 K:BB through 80 innings into his next start Wednesday in Minnesota, and another poor performance could put his rotation spot in jeopardy.

Braves' Kevin Gausman: Hit with sixth loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gausman (3-6) took the loss after surrendering six runs on nine hits and a walk while striking out eight over six innings Sunday against the Phillies.

The Phillies jumped on Gausman in the first inning, scoring one in the first, another in the third and four in the fifth before exiting. The 28-year-old right-hander gave up just one run over seven frames in his last start against the Nationals on July 21, but he wasn't able to turn in a second straight quality start. He now owns a 5.97 ERA with 80 punchouts over 75.1 innings this year.

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

Gausman (3-5) earned the win against Washington on Sunday, hurling seven innings and giving up one run on five hits and no walks while striking out eight.

In his first major-league start since landing on the injured list due to plantar fasciitis June 11, Gausman stifled the Nationals through seven innings, allowing only a trio of singles. He exited after allowing back-to-back hits leading off the eighth, with one of those baserunners coming around to score the only run charged to Gausman in the game. The 28-year-old was successful largely due to his efficiency, as he threw 63 of 83 pitches for strikes and did not walk a batter for only the second time this season. Gausman struggled to the tune of a 6.21 ERA prior to his stint on the IL but posted a 2.87 ERA and 5-3 record in 10 starts with Atlanta last season. He'll look to build upon Sunday's gem in his next scheduled start, a road battle against the Phillies on Saturday.

Braves' Kevin Gausman: Activated ahead of Sunday's start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gausman (foot) was activated from the injured list ahead of Sunday's start against the Nationals.

Things didn't go well for Gausman prior to his injury, and he will now get a chance to turn his season around in advance of the trade deadline. He logged a 6.21 ERA and 4.61 xFIP in 13 starts, striking out 64 in 62.1 innings. If he does not show some signs of turning things around, it's possible that the Braves could trade for someone to replace him in the rotation.

Braves' Kevin Gausman: Confirmed as Sunday's starter
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gausman (foot) is listed as the Braves' scheduled starter for Sunday's game against the Nationals.

The Braves will officially activate Gausman from the 10-day injured list ahead of the series finale, with the right-hander rejoining the rotation as a replacement for the recently demoted Bryse Wilson. Gausman has been brutal over 62.1 innings in the big leagues this season (6.21 ERA, 1.51 WHIP), but he drew positive reports coming out of his three-start rehab stint in the minors, per David O'Brien of The Athletic. In his final outing Monday with Triple-A Gwinnett, Gausman fired seven innings and gave up three runs (two earned) on six hits and a walk while striking out 10.

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.
