Certainly, the expectation is that Gausman will avoid a serious problem and return in short order. Although the stakes are high for both the player and the team. At 23-22, San Francisco receives seventh seed in the National League, a two-game cushion over Rocky for the final playoffs. The Giants’ surprisingly solid performance is to some credit to Gausman, who has converted a 4.05 ERA / 3.54 FIP ball in 46.2 innings this year. Quietly, the former Orioles strike-up at a 32% clip, the eleventh highest rate among qualified starters. Certainly, he has earned well on the club’s low- $ 9MM investment this offseason. A healthy Gausman Giants will be a part of the playoff rotation if they hang on a postseason spot.
Personally it is extremely important for Gausman to finish the season in full force. He will return to the open market this time before his age-30 season. Between his strong platform year and youth, he will be well positioned in the market on high-end starting pitching.
Logan web Will move in rotation in place of Gaussmann this evening. The 23-year-old has a 5.23 ERA / 3.68 FIP in nine starts this year.
