Blue Jays' Kevin Gausman (shoulder) on track for Opening Day rotation

Toronto Blue Jays right-hander Kevin Gausman (shoulder) recorded 7 strikeouts and allowed 1 earned run on 3 hits and no walks across three-plus innings in his Grapefruit League start against the Pittsburgh Pirates.

What It Means:

Gausman was initially expected to begin the season on the injured list due to shoulder fatigue, but now he's trending toward making the Opening Day rotation. The Blue Jays already named Jose Berrios as the starter for Thursday against the Tampa Bay Rays.

numberFire's models project Gausman to record a 3.84 ERA and 1.19 WHIP this season, with a 28.2 percent strikeout rate and 7.3 percent walk rate.
