2018

Subscribe now to see our 2018 outlook.

2017

A strong spring training performance landed Gant on the Braves' 2016 Opening Day roster, but he was quickly demoted to Triple-A Gwinnett after surrendering four runs in his first two big league innings. The young righty was a serviceable starter in Triple-A, posting 3.14 ERA and 48:13 K:BB over 43 innings. In early June, an injury to Williams Perez opened the door for Gant to join the big league rotation and he responded well with a 3.38 ERA and 17:6 K:BB over 18.2 innings in four starts. An oblique injury caused him to miss nearly two months and he was placed in a bullpen role for the last couple weeks of the season. Now that he's been traded the Cardinals, a team with far more talent in the rotation, Gant will likely remain in the bullpen, and he's not even assured of a spot there.

2016

An unheralded 21st-round pick out of high school in 2011, Gant was acquired by the Braves last summer via trade. At 6-foot-5, he has an unusual delivery, which has seemingly made it difficult for opposing hitters to square up his offerings. Upon being acquired by Atlanta, Gant pitched well at Double-A Mississippi, finishing with a 43:14 K:BB over 40.2 innings (seven starts). At age 23, he may end up back in the minors even if the Braves give him the ball as their fifth starter to begin the season, but he appears to be near the top of the list to step into the rotation with Mike Foltynewicz returning from injury, and Manny Banuelos slowed by elbow soreness again this spring.
