PROMOTION: Luiz Gohara Called-Up to Atlanta’s Bullpen
Atlanta Braves starting pitching prospect was called up to the MLB on Tuesday. Gohara will work out of the bullpen for the time being. Gohara’s fastball/slider combo should be very effective out of the pen, especially against left-handers. However, Gohara proved last season that he can be very effective starting games in the bigs too, as he posted a 2.75 FIP and 1.0 WAR in 5 starts during his cup of coffee with the Braves last summer. If fellow prospect Mike Soroka stumbles again, look for Gohara to move into the starting rotation, possibly for good.
