2020 Fantasy Outlook
Gott got his longest look in the majors in 2019, compiling a career-high 52.2 innings, primarily in middle relief. Before an elbow injury cut his season short in late August, the right-hander emerged as one of the Giants' most reliable bullpen options, compiling a spotless 7-0 record along with a 3.12 FIP and 1.10 WHIP. He also flashed legitimate strikeout numbers for the first time in his big-league career, posting a 26.6 K%. The sudden jump in strikeout rate can largely be attributed to Gott's decision to swap his primary pitch from a sinkerball, which induced a meager 8.5 K% in 2018, to a 95-mph four-seam fastball that registered a 26.4 K% last season. At 27 years old, Gott appears to have found his place in the big leagues and should play an important role in San Francisco's bullpen next season. His fantasy value will depend upon whether that role includes a bump to more high-leverage situations. Read Past Outlooks

Shut down with elbow injury
PSan Francisco Giants
Elbow
September 13, 2020
The Giants placed Gott on the 10-day injured list Sunday with right elbow inflammation.
ANALYSIS
The transaction is retroactive to Sept. 10, so Gott won't be eligible to return from the IL until the final week of the regular season. The injury is a tough break for Gott, who had just stringed together several quality outings after losing hold of the closing gig in mid-August, when he blew two saves and gave up 11 earned runs over a three-appearance stretch.

Stat Review
How does Trevor Gott compare to other relievers?
This section compares his stats with all relief pitcher seasons from the previous three seasons (minimum 30 innings)*. The bar represents the player's percentile rank. For example, if the bar is halfway across, then the player falls into the 50th percentile for that stat and it would be considered average.

* Exit Velocity, Barrels/BBE %, Balls Hit 95+ MPH %, and Spin Rate are benchmarked against 2019 data (min 30 IP). See here for more exit velocity/barrels stats plus an explanation of current limitations with that data set.
  • K/BB
    Strikeout to walk ratio.
  • K/9
    Average strikeouts per nine innings.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2017
2016
Gott was picked up from the Angels in the Yunel Escobar trade last offseason, and ended up spending most of 2016 posting mediocre numbers for Triple-A Syracuse. The righty has a big fastball with some sink, but his inability to develop a reliable offspeed pitch has kept him from earning a spot in the Nationals' middle relief corps. There could be some spots open in their bullpen this spring, especially since they missed out on the big-name closers, so if Gott can sharpen his curveball then he could play a role on Washington's 2017 staff.
Gott had a successful run with the Angels after being recalled from Triple-A Salt Lake in July, and he was able to keep his ERA down with the help of a 57 percent groundball rate. He couldn't find the strikeouts that have been a staple of his career in the minor leagues, as he notched just 5.1 K/9, despite an average fastball velocity over 96 mph. Traded to Washington in the Yunel Escobar deal, Gott now faces even more competition for saves than he did in Anaheim and figures to be at least third or fourth in the pecking order entering the season.
