Week 13 Pitching Waiver Wire: Another Detroit Prospect Got Called Up

How can anyone leave Gomber on the waiver wire at this point? Sure, he’s going to start half of the remainder of his game this year at Coors Field, but he’s simply pitching too well to not have him rostered. On the season, Gomber is 6-5 with a 3.54 ERA and a 75-to-23 strikeout-to-walk ratio over 76.1 innings pitched. Through his five April starts, Gomber had struck out 23 and walked a whopping 19 batters over his first 23 innings pitched. Those five starts resulted in an ERA of 6.65. In his nine starts since, Gomber has a 2.19 ERA with 52 strikeouts and just four walks over 53.1 innings pitched. The remarkable turnaround in the strikeout-to-walk ratio has paid massive dividends for Gomber and his fantasy owners. While he’s right around average in terms of generating strikeouts with swings and misses, his batted ball statistics are encouraging. He’s in the 71st-percentile and 80th-percentile in terms of Average Exit Velocity and HardHit% respectively. In addition, his Expected ERA, 3.32, is less than his actual ERA, 3.54. If he’s available, Gomber should without a doubt be rostered.
