Giants pitcher Drew Smyly
Like Gausman, Drew Smyly struggled for much of the 2019 season. And just like Gausman, he has come into spring training looking sharp.
He hasn’t allowed a run in 3.2 innings, giving up only two hits and a walk. Just like Gausman, it’s early and a small sample size but it’s a positive sign.
With so many question marks around the starting rotation, Gausman and Smyly starting the season in solid form would go a long way towards building trust in the rotation.
