Gonsolin, believe it or not, has already surpassed his career-high in innings pitched at 68 1/3. Despite that, his peripherals are not the best has ever posted. He’s benefiting from a 90.9 LOB% and 42.9 GB%. His FIP is 3.44, which is solid, but he’s vastly outpitching it right now. There’s likely to be regression to the mean, but he’s been a bit of a godsend so far this season as the Dodgers have dealt with a myriad of injuries to the starting rotation.
