Scouting Report

Scouting grades: Fastball: 60 | Curveball: 60 | Slider: 50 | Splitter: 70 | Control: 50 | Overall: 50

Gonsolin starred as a two-way player at St. Mary's, leading the Gaels in batting (.308) as a sophomore, steals (12) and saves (seven) as a junior and saves again (six) as a senior. Though the Dodgers liked his tools as an outfielder, they preferred him as a pitcher and have seen him consistently improve since he moved full-time to the mound after signing for $2,500 as a ninth-rounder in 2016. His stuff took off in his first full season as a pro and continued to impress after he shifted from the bullpen to the rotation in 2018, when he topped the system in wins (10), ERA (2.60) and strikeouts (155 in 128 innings).

Gonsolin began 2017 with an 88-92 mph fastball but was hitting 100 by the end of that season, and he operated at 93-97 mph as a starter in '18 while maintaining his velocity into the late innings. His upper-80s splitter devastates hitters with the way it dives at the plate, and his low-80s curveball has become a consistent plus offering with nice shape. He also uses a mid-80s slider to give hitters a different look.

The athleticism that helped Gonsolin thrive as a two-way player in college also allows him to throw strikes on a regular basis. He still needs to refine his command, and Los Angeles would like to see him work inside and up in the zone more with his fastball. He has progressed from senior sign to potential No. 3 starter rapidly, and he could be a multi-inning relief weapon this year for a Dodgers club loaded with starters.
