2018 FANTASY BASEBALL DRAFT SLEEPER: LUIZ GOHARA SP ATLANTA BRAVES

Can you be a prime pitching fantasy baseball sleeper and also be somewhat off the radar?  Yes if you are Atlanta Braves property Luiz Gohara.  As spring training gets underway and fantasy baseball drafts move closer, Gohara is a 21-year-old fireballer who is simply not getting the hype he should based on talent.  While Gohara's 4.90 ERA debut with the Braves in late 2017 was nothing to write home about, the overpowering fastball and developing offspeed stuff should have the righty as one of the more talked about pitching sleepers coming into the season.  It simply hasn't happened that way just yet and while that could still change, Gohara looks like a prime buying opportunity who could really result in some major upside if all breaks right.

Now in digging in more on Gohara, the former Seattle Mariners farmhand has always been about big strikeout totals during his minor league stops and 2017 was no different as he put up a 10.38 K/9 in Double-A and then followed this up with a 12.33 mark in Triple-A before the late promotion to the Braves.  While Gohara;s control has come-and-gone at times, he has done a nice job keeping the ball in the park at most levels and this is a major skill to own given the power-leanings of the new Atlanta ballpark.  This will add more potential to Gohara's bottom line and keep in mind he averaged a scorching 97 on his fastball with the Braves in his cup of coffee run a year ago.  So while you would like the ballpark to be a bit better in terms of investing in young pitching, Gohara has so much going for him overall that he should be on any sleeper list this spring. The talent is way too obvious.
