RHP Trevor Gott

Sporting a 7-0 record last season, Trevor Gott benefited from being a middle reliever who was in the right game at the right time more often than not. His 4.44 ERA may not match his record, but we all know wins and losses are not totally representative of pitchers.

His 1.10 WHIP was solid, and his 57 strikeouts in 53 innings are closer to where Gustave and Coonrod would ideally be.

I could see Gott playing the George Kontos role as a middle reliever who comes into the game in the fifth or sixth inning if the starter didn’t go very far.

That role will be even more important when the rotation is as weak as it is and there could be a fair number of short-lived starts.
