No. 6 on Matt Eddy's list at Baseball America of breakout pitching candidates:

6. Tony Gonsolin, RHP, Dodgers

Velocity: 68% | O-Swing: 47% | Z-Contact: 94% | F-Strike: 34%

28 IP: 2.89 ERA, 3.96 FIP, 12.3 SwStr (80%)

Projected role: rotation depth | Age: 25

Gonsolin played both ways at St. Mary’s but quickly adapted to becoming a full-time pitcher in pro ball. He reached the majors in his fourth pro season and enters 2020 as the No. 82 prospect in baseball. The Dodgers’ seemingly endless supply of rotation options makes Gonsolin a risky gamble for his starts, but he is a sound long-term play based on his wide repertoire. Not only did he throw four offerings with positive pitch value in his debut, but his unique split-changeup give him a different look.
