In what can really be called his “breakout season” Garratt Gould has went from “Suspect” to “Top Ten” Prospect for the Dodgers.
Garrett is 6′ 4″ and 190 (I’d say he’s more like 215) is in his third professional season. Actually, he only pitched 2 innings three years ago at age 17. Last year, he was 18 at the start of the season and battled injuries while pitching 57 innings.
This year he was 19 at the start of the season (20 now) and his numbers reflect his maturity:
- 108 IP
- 92 H
- 2.48 ERA
- 1.16 WHIP
- 7 HR
- 34 BB
- 95 K
It would appear to me that the Dodgers will probably not let him get more than 140 innings this year.
I caught up with him in Ft. Wayne, Indiana and had a little chat about what is happening to his career.
I don’t know if he’ll get a promo to AA this year because I think the Dodgers would like to just build on what he has done, but he will certainly be there next season.
Enjoy the video.
