2024 Fantasy Outlook
A 24-year-old lefty who safely projects to make it as at least a back-end starter, Gasser has thrown 161.2 innings at Triple-A and finished 2023 with a 3.09 ERA, 1.17 WHIP and 115 strikeouts over his final 93.1 innings. What Gasser lacks in quality offerings (zero plus pitches, 92-mph average fastball velocity) he makes up for in quantity -- he threw over 100 four-seamers, changeups, curveballs, cutters, sinkers, sliders and sweepers at Triple-A. His game is to keep hitters guessing while adeptly locating his pitches. What used to be a deep, talented Brewers rotation is now extremely top-heavy, so the back few spots should be cycled based on merit and health, and Gasser will surely get a look at some point, if not at the beginning of the season. He doesn't have the type of electric arsenal to be a bullpen weapon, so Gasser should stay stretched out all year. Read Past Outlooks

Unlikely to pitch again in 2024
PMilwaukee Brewers
Elbow
June 11, 2024
Brewers manager Pat Murphy said prior to Monday's 3-1 win over the Blue Jays that Gasser (elbow) is unlikely to return from the injured list this season, Steve Megargee of the Associated Press reports. "[Wade] Miley, Gasser and [Brandon Woodruff], you're probably not going to see," Murphy said. "It would probably be safe to say those three are out for the year."
ANALYSIS
Gasser was placed on the IL on June 5 with a left flexor strain, and though the rookie hasn't yet settled on a treatment plan for the injury, Murphy said that he's pessimistic Gasser will pitch again this season regardless of whether he undergoes surgery or opts for more extended rest and rehab. Since sustaining the injury coming out of his June 1 start against the White Sox, Gasser has sought two medical opinions on his elbow and is set to get another in the coming days when he meets with Dr. Keith Meister in Dallas. According to Murphy, one of the doctors has recommended that Gasser undergo a reconstruction surgery for the elbow, but it's unclear if the second opinion Gasser received from Dr. Neal ElAttrache concurred with that assessment. The Brewers will likely provide an update on how Gasser plans to treat the injury after Dr. Meister gets a chance to evaluate his elbow.

Latest Fantasy Rumors
May debut this week
PMilwaukee Brewers
May 5, 2024
Brewers manager Pat Murphy said Sunday that Gasser is "a strong candidate" to start this week, as Freddy Peralta is likely to serve his suspension, reports Curt Hogg of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.
ANALYSIS
Gasser didn't debut for Triple-A Nashville this season until late April due to an elbow issue, but he's already made three starts and has a 5.25 ERA, 1.50 WHIP and 17:6 K:BB over 12 innings. The 24-year-old lefty is one of Milwaukee's top prospects, and he could carve out a rotation spot if given the chance considering Milwaukee's injury-ravaged rotation. Gasser pitched for Nashville on Sunday, so he's already lined up to fill Peralta's rotation spot.
See All MLB Rumors
2023 Fantasy Outlook
We may never know for sure, but Gasser may have been the return piece Milwaukee most coveted from San Diego in the surprise Josh Hader deal at the deadline. Esteury Ruiz, the other top player the Brewers got back, has already been flipped in the three-team trade that sent William Contreras to Milwaukee. Gasser remains, and has a chance to follow in the impressive line of young starters to populate the Brewers' rotation. He had a 3.47 ERA, 1.37 WHIP and 57:24 K:BB in 46.2 innings across nine starts at Double-A and Triple-A after the trade - the 23-year-old's first starts above High-A. As things stand, Gasser would be the most exciting option whenever the Brewers need a sixth starter, and he is nearing big-league readiness. That said, the team generally breaks in their prized pitching prospects out of the bullpen before moving them to the rotation full time. Gasser looks more like a No. 4 starter based just on his low-90s fastball velocity and secondary offerings. However, his deceptive left-handed delivery and the ride he gets on his fastball allow the pitch to play up when he is locating it. Additionally, his slider and changeup play perfectly off his fastball, so it's easy to see how the Brewers could turn him into a No. 3 starter as long as he throws enough strikes.
