Gausman (3-5) took the win against Washington on Sunday, hurling seven innings and giving up one run on five hits and no walks while striking out eight.
In his first major-league start since landing on the IL due to plantar fasciitis on June 11, Gausman stifled the Nationals through seven innings, allowing only a trio of singles. He exited after allowing back-to-back hits leading off the eighth, with one of those baserunners coming around to score the only run charged to Gausman in the game. The 28-year-old was successful largely due to his efficiency, as he threw 63 of 83 pitches for strikes and did not walk a batter for only the second time this season. Gausman struggled to the tune of a 6.21 ERA prior to his stint on the IL but posted a 2.87 ERA and 5-3 record in 10 starts with Atlanta last season. He'll look to build upon Sunday's gem in his next scheduled start, a road battle against the Phillies on Saturday.
Gausman (foot) was activated from the injured list ahead of Sunday's start against the Nationals.
Things didn't go well for Gausman prior to his injury, and he will now get a chance to turn his season around in advance of the trade deadline. He logged a 6.21 ERA and 4.61 xFIP in 13 starts, striking out 64 in 62.1 innings. If he does not show some signs of turning things around, it's possible that the Braves could trade for someone to replace him in the rotation.
Gausman (foot) is listed as the Braves' scheduled starter for Sunday's game against the Nationals.
The Braves will officially activate Gausman from the 10-day injured list ahead of the series finale, with the right-hander rejoining the rotation as a replacement for the recently demoted Bryse Wilson. Gausman has been brutal over 62.1 innings in the big leagues this season (6.21 ERA, 1.51 WHIP), but he drew positive reports coming out of his three-start rehab stint in the minors, per David O'Brien of The Athletic. In his final outing Monday with Triple-A Gwinnett, Gausman fired seven innings and gave up three runs (two earned) on six hits and a walk while striking out 10.
Gausman (foot) allowed two earned runs on six hits and one walk while striking out 10 over six innings in a rehab start for Triple-A Gwinnett on Tuesday.
This was Gausman's third and presumably final rehab appearance. He threw 104 pitches, with the only real blemish a homer he allowed to Logan Morrison in the second inning. Look for Gausman to slot back into the Braves' starting rotation Sunday against Washington, supplanting Bryse Wilson.
Gausman (foot) will make a rehab start for Triple-A Gwinnett on Tuesday.
Gausman has missed over a month with plantar fasciitis. He's made two rehab starts so far, allowing four runs (three earned) in 11 innings while recording a 9:1 K:BB. He already reached six innings in his most recent rehab outing, so there's a good chance Tuesday's appearance will be his final one before he's back in the big leagues.
