Luiz Gohara: Released by Halos
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Angels' Luiz Gohara: Moved to minor-league camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Angels' Luiz Gohara: Months away from pitching in games
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Angels' Luiz Gohara: Inks minors deal with Angels
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Luiz Gohara: Released by Braves
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Braves' Luiz Gohara: Designated for assignment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gohara (shoulder) was designated for assignment by the Braves on Wednesday.

Gohara, who hasn't pitched competitively all season due to a balky left shoulder, was dropped from Atlanta's 40-man roster to free up a spot for Shane Greene, who was acquired from the Tigers on Wednesday. The southpaw is still just 23 years old and carries some prospect pedigree, so he could certainly draw some interest on waivers.

Braves' Luiz Gohara: Remains shut down
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gohara continues to tend to left shoulder discomfort and is without a timetable to make his 2019 debut, Mark Bowman of reports.

Gohara has been stuck at extended spring training since being optioned to Triple-A Gwinnett on March 8, but it's not clear where he currently stands in his recovery program. While reports in late April suggested he had resumed throwing, no news has emerged regarding Gohara potentially moving on to facing hitters in simulated games or as part of a rehab assignment. Bowman suggested that Gohara might ultimately require exploratory surgery on the problematic shoulder, which would essentially render the 2019 campaign another lost season for the 22-year-old.

Braves' Luiz Gohara: Still not pitching in games
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager Brian Snitker said Gohara (shoulder) is pitching at extended spring training, David O'Brien of The Athletic reports.

Gohara has yet to pitch in a game as he continues to work his way back from a shoulder injury. The southpaw should be considered out indefinitely.

March 28, 2019 03:00 PM
Braves' Luiz Gohara: Not yet pitching in games
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gohara (shoulder) is not pitching in minor-league games yet, David O'Brien of The Athletic reports.

Mike Soroka, who also dealt with a shoulder injury this spring, has started pitching in minor-league games, so Gohara is further behind. The Braves don't expect either player back in the big leagues anytime soon, and Gohara should be considered out indefinitely for now.

Braves' Luiz Gohara: Optioned to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gohar (shoulder) was optioned to Triple-A Gwinnett on Friday.

Gohara could have been involved in the battle for the Braves' final rotation spot this spring, but lingering shoulder issues kept that from being a real possibility. He appears to be trending in the right direction but won't be built up in time to challenge for a job. He could recapture some of his former hype and put himself back in the mix with strong numbers at the Triple-A level, though he'll have to beat out a large crop of similarly promising young pitchers.

Braves' Luiz Gohara: Throws without incident
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gohara (shoulder) tossed a live batting-practice session Wednesday, David O'Brien of The Athletic reports.

After recently completing a pair of bullpen sessions, Gohara took another step forward in his recovery from a left shoulder issue by facing hitters. Assuming he reports no ill effects following Thursday's team off-day, Gohara will likely make his Grapefruit League debut at some point over the weekend.

Braves' Luiz Gohara: Will throw Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gohara (shoulder) will throw a live batting practice session Wednesday, 680 The Fan Atlanta reports.

Gohara has been brought along slowly this spring, but the report notes that if all goes well during Wednesday's session, Gohara could get into a game as soon as this weekend.

Braves' Luiz Gohara: Not yet ready for game action
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gohara (shoulder) has been throwing but is not yet ready for game action, Mark Bowman of reports.

Gohara had some hype heading into last season, but his campaign was ruined by injuries. He threw just 77.2 innings overall, with only 19.2 of those coming in the big leagues. A sore shoulder affected him late in the season and is apparently still a factor. The young lefty is theoretically in the battle for the Braves' fifth starter job, but he will need time on the mound in spring training to stand out from a crowd of similarly interesting young arms.

Braves' Luiz Gohara: Recalled; put on 60-day DL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gohara (shoulder) was activated from the minor-league disabled list Friday and called up from Triple-A Gwinnett. He was then placed on the 60-day major-league DL.

The Braves made a slew of moves involving Gohara in order to take him off the 40-man roster as Arodys Vizcaino (shoulder) was brought back from the 60-day DL in a corresponding move. Gohara was initially put on the 7-day disabled list at Gwinnett on Aug. 28 due to a shoulder injury that he had been battling for weeks. This move officially rules him out for the rest of the 2018 campaign.

Braves' Luiz Gohara: Returns to action at Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gohara (shoulder) rejoined the rotation at Triple-A Gwinnett on Thursday, tossing 3.2 shutout innings in 4-2 win over Buffalo. He gave up a hit and walked one while striking out three in the outing.

Gwinnett was conservative with Gohara's workload after a two-and-a-half-week absence due to the sore left shoulder, as the 22-year-old tossed only 54 pitches (31 strikes) before departing. Unless Gohara reports complications over the next couple of days, he should push up his pitch count in his upcoming start for Gwinnett. Gohara seems likely to rejoin the big club in September when rosters expand, but he's expected to be deployed in a relief role with Anibal Sanchez thriving as the Braves' No. 5 starter.

Braves' Luiz Gohara: Dealing with sore shoulder
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gohara is sidelined with a sore shoulder, David O'Brien of The Athletic Atlanta reports.

Gohara hasn't pitched since July 29 because of the issue. This helps explain why the 22-year-old wasn't considered for a promotion following Max Fried's (groin) placement on the disabled list earlier in the week. It's unclear how long Gohara will be sidelined at this point.

Braves' Luiz Gohara: Tuesday return to rotation unlikely
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager Brian Snitker indicated Gohara is unlikely to be recalled from Triple-A Gwinnett to start Tuesday's game at Miami, Mark Bowman of reports.

Gohara was expected to rejoin the Atlanta rotation when a fifth starter was first needed after the All-Star break. However, with the 21-year-old displaying diminished average velocity in his start Thursday for Gwinnett, the Braves are now leaning toward activating Max Fried (finger) from the 10-day disabled list to take the hill for the big club Tuesday.

July 12, 2018 03:04 PM
Braves' Luiz Gohara: Optioned to Gwinnett
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gohara was sent down to Triple-A Gwinnett following Wednesday's contest.

Gohara is expected to return to Atlanta after the All-Star break, and could begin the second half of the season in the club's rotation since Brandon McCarthy (knee) and Max Fried (finger) are expected to need more time on the disabled list. Across nine appearances, including just one start, with the Braves this year, Gohara has posted a 5.95 ERA and 1.22 WHIP with a 18:8 K:BB over 19.2 innings. Look for him to make a start or two at the Triple-A level in the near future.

Braves' Luiz Gohara: Could open second half in starting role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gohara could serve as the Braves' fifth starter when the second half begins with neither Brandon McCarthy (knee) nor Max Fried (finger) expected to be activated from the disabled list immediately after the All-Star break, Mark Bowman of reports.

Due to a pair of off days during the current week, the Braves are expected to get by with a four-man rotation through the weekend, allowing Gohara to stick in the bullpen for now. The team will first require a fifth starter July 24 in Miami, and Gohara would seemingly have a leg up on the assignment over Triple-A Gwinnett hurlers Kolby Allard and Touki Toussaint, who could both benefit from some more development time in the minors. Gohara probably hasn't performed as well as the Braves anticipated heading into the season -- he has submitted a 5.95 ERA in nine outings (one start) in the majors and a 6.17 ERA in six starts at Triple-A -- but he's shown improved form in his two appearances since rejoining Atlanta in a relief role July 4. In those outings, he has yielded one hit -- a solo home run -- and no walks over four innings while striking out five.

Braves' Luiz Gohara: Summoned from minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Braves recalled Gohara from Triple-A Gwinnett on Wednesday.

The Braves will swap Gohara into the bullpen for Evan Phillips, who was optioned to Gwinnett in a corresponding move after working 2.1 innings in Tuesday's loss to the Yankees. Gohara is expected to fill a similar long-relief role for Atlanta, though he'll probably only be in store for a short-term stay with the big club. Atlanta is still intent on developing Gohara as a starter, so look for him to head back to Gwinnett in the near future to slot back into the Triple-A rotation.
