Two scoreless innings have now gotten his ERA below 6, but how is it that there is not someone better in AAA to come up and pitch out of the pen than him? My biggest grip with Gosling is his WHIP, which after the 7th inning yesterday was a nice, even 3.0. Yes, he got out of the 8th only allowing one hit/walk, lowering the number to 2.68, but that is disgusting. That means that at the very least (on average), Gosling loads the bases every time he comes up to pitch.
He is partly saved by the fact that he has 10 Ks in 6.1 innings, but his K/BB is 1.25, not a good number by any means. Right handed hitters are slugging .714 off him, so there is no reason he should be anything other than a LOOGY. (How the heck was he a starter if he can't touch righties?). Do the Reds really have no better option in the minors than Gosling? If so, heaven help us all.
