A nice outing by Gore at Rochester tonight:

4IP 4H 1 R 1 ER  1BB 4 SO 1.08 ERA

65 Pitches, 46 strikes
No idea where that 1.08 number comes from, but the rest of the stat line is pleasing

I'd be fine if they shut him down today. He's gone 60 pitches and not fallen apart. End it on a good note, see him in Spring.

According to the Post, the plan is to start him in Rochester at the beginning of the week, with the goal of him pitching 5 innings with at least 75 pitches.  The writer speculates that he might start one of the two home games against the Phillies on October 1.

can only hope it's not being off due to discomfort.  See if he can do his next throwing session. IF he can, I still may shut him down, but it will rest some minds.

Sensible decision. Same with Cavalli. Now, Nats, get an average starting pitcher who can replace Fedde and let Espino go back to the bullpen.

Too bad MASN won’t let us watch any of these guys. That works out of course to a Corbinesque ERA of 6.00!

Ahhh.  Thanks. The one strike out is disappointing. Will be difficult if he can’t strike guys out. Especially without a shift.

From Svrluga today:

Quote
Here is MacKenzie Gore, uber-talented Washington Nationals left-hander, going against the grain following the third start of a spring that is enormously important for his career and for his franchise’s future: “I’m going to try to be positive.”

That may not be his nature.

“He is a perfectionist,” said his new manager, Dave Martinez, who barely knows him but has already gained that strong impression. “He can tend to be a little hard on himself. ... Trying to get him to kind of stick to the process and not get so heated up when he makes a bad pitch.”

So, then, about that four-pitch walk to open Tuesday’s start against the Miami Marlins.

“Yeah,” Gore said. “That’s beautiful, huh?”

Gore is 6-foot-2 and 192 pounds, lean and lanky and athletic. He has the body of a starting pitcher and the air of a starting pitcher. His health and his performance — in that order — will go much further toward determining whether the upcoming Nats season is a success than any number of wins or losses. So his introduction to his new fan base must include the following: He has standards for himself, and if he does not meet them, he will not be happy.

Quote
“I mean, four pitches he could get you out with,” shortstop CJ Abrams said.

“Throwing 95-plus from the left side with good command?” lefty Patrick Corbin said.

Not a bad place to start. His stuff, in general — how is it?

“Oh, gosh,” pitching coach Jim Hickey said.

“You start with the fastball,” catcher Riley Adams said. “It’s an electric pitch that he can locate top, bottom, whatever.”

Thats some grade A soft journalism right there

Be hilarious if Joey was like, "Meh, its fine. *spits* Fastball is okay, but he loves hanging juicy curves for me to hit bombs on"

Career 11.5 K/9 in the minors and 9.3 K/9 so far in 70 innings in the majors.  I don't think strikeouts are going to be the problem.  Control is the weak spot.

Ok but those stats were all before his arm issues last year. We shall see.

That's fair.  Thankfully his velocity seems to be back to normal after it had gone down last year just before the arm injury became official - just gotta keep fingers crossed.

We have so many prospects I will just keep the fingers crossed for them all.
