Community Projection: Kevin Gausman

If you’re getting Drew Pomeranz vibes off of the Giants’ big acquisition of the winter, I don’t blame you. Kevin Gausman is almost certainly a player of that ilk — talented with the chance for peak performance and at a modest price ($9 million). But Gausman isn’t a total reclamation project like Pomeranz or Derek Holland before him: he’s not coming off failed seasons, he’s coming off back-to-back half good-half bad seasons.

As part of my conscious uncoupling from the site ahead of March 31st, I spent the winter not really looking into the few players the Giants acquired.
