The article requires an insider subscription but here's a link to it He highlighted 9 players in the article and said at the beginning, "Every March, I post a list of players who I think are primed for significant upticks in their performances in the coming season. These are players who've already lost their rookie status but either haven't performed at all in the majors or perhaps just haven't lived up to expectations." In summary, he said he has gotten positive reports on Gausman's slider this Spring and thinks if it can become even a consistently average pitch (or better), he could be a threat for 200 K's in 2015. With that kind of upside, I'd have to think if anyone gets pushed from the rotation to make room for our favorite $12 million albatross, it's Gonzalez. Then again, I don't think Ubaldo should be bumping anyone to begin with. How do you see the rotation playing out? Are you on the Gausman breakout bandwagon?
