Luiz Gohara: Released by Halos
Gohara (shoulder) was released by the Angels on Monday, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports.
Once a top prospect in the Mariners' and Braves' organizations, Gohara has dealt with a long list of arm injuries over the last few years, which has negatively impacted his development. As of early March, he was still months away from being able to return from a shoulder injury.... See More ... See Less
Angels' Luiz Gohara: Moved to minor-league camp
Gohara (shoulder) was reassigned to minor-league camp Tuesday.
Gohara was invited to big-league camp this season despite recovering from a shoulder injury that will keep him from throwing in games until at least May. The southpaw was once a promising prospect but missed all of the 2019 campaign due to the shoulder issue.... See More ... See Less
Angels' Luiz Gohara: Months away from pitching in games
Gohara (shoulder) is months away from being able to pitch in games, Jeff Fletcher of the Orange County Register reports.
He had to settle for a minor-league deal with the Angels after getting released by the Braves in August of 2019. Gohara has a big arm in a big 6-foot-3 frame, but he has not thrown a pitch in a game since 2018. It is unclear if the Angels will attempt to stretch him out or develop him as a reliever once he is healthy. His command and third-pitch changeup were not starter quality at the time of his injury.... See More ... See Less
Angels' Luiz Gohara: Inks minors deal with Angels
Gohara (shoulder) signed a minor-league contract with the Angels on Wednesday, Roster Roundup reports.
Gohara was let go by the Braves in early August and has yet to pitch at any level in 2019 due to a shoulder injury. The 23-year-old was once a highly touted prospect, but he had a 4.94 ERA and 1.27 WHIP at Triple-A last season and allowed 13 runs over 19.2 frames in the majors. The specifics of Gohara's injury remain unclear, but there's been no indication he'll be able to take the mound this season.... See More ... See Less
Luiz Gohara: Released by Braves
Gohara (shoulder) was released by the Braves on Friday.
Gohara had some prospect hype in the fairly recent past, but now he's a 23-year-old free agent. He's seen his stock fall precipitously after a pair of injury-filled seasons. Shoulder issues have prevented him from throwing a pitch at any level this season, and it's possible things are worse than they'd appeared given that the Braves have now given up on him entirely. Whichever team ends up with him will be getting a pitcher who is still quite young and who showed considerable promise as recently as 2017, when he recorded a 2.62 ERA and a 28.4 percent strikeout rate across the three highest levels of the minors....

Braves' Luiz Gohara: Designated for assignment
Gohara (shoulder) was designated for assignment by the Braves on Wednesday.
Gohara, who hasn't pitched competitively all season due to a balky left shoulder, was dropped from Atlanta's 40-man roster to free up a spot for Shane Greene, who was acquired from the Tigers on Wednesday. The southpaw is still just 23 years old and carries some prospect pedigree, so he could certainly draw some interest on waivers.... See More ... See Less
Braves' Luiz Gohara: Remains shut down
Gohara continues to tend to left shoulder discomfort and is without a timetable to make his 2019 debut, Mark Bowman of MLB.com reports.
Gohara has been stuck at extended spring training since being optioned to Triple-A Gwinnett on March 8, but it's not clear where he currently stands in his recovery program. While reports in late April suggested he had resumed throwing, no news has emerged regarding Gohara potentially moving on to facing hitters in simulated games or as part of a rehab assignment. Bowman suggested that Gohara might ultimately require exploratory surgery on the problematic shoulder, which would essentially render the 2019 campaign another lost season for the 22-year-old....

Braves' Luiz Gohara: Still not pitching in games
Manager Brian Snitker said Gohara (shoulder) is pitching at extended spring training, David O'Brien of The Athletic reports.
Gohara has yet to pitch in a game as he continues to work his way back from a shoulder injury. The southpaw should be considered out indefinitely.... See More ... See Less
Braves' Luiz Gohara: Not yet pitching in games
Gohara (shoulder) is not pitching in minor-league games yet, David O'Brien of The Athletic reports.
Mike Soroka, who also dealt with a shoulder injury this spring, has started pitching in minor-league games, so Gohara is further behind. The Braves don't expect either player back in the big leagues anytime soon, and Gohara should be considered out indefinitely for now.... See More ... See Less
Braves' Luiz Gohara: Optioned to Triple-A
Gohar (shoulder) was optioned to Triple-A Gwinnett on Friday.
Gohara could have been involved in the battle for the Braves' final rotation spot this spring, but lingering shoulder issues kept that from being a real possibility. He appears to be trending in the right direction but won't be built up in time to challenge for a job. He could recapture some of his former hype and put himself back in the mix with strong numbers at the Triple-A level, though he'll have to beat out a large crop of similarly promising young pitchers....

Braves' Luiz Gohara: Throws without incident
Gohara (shoulder) tossed a live batting-practice session Wednesday, David O'Brien of The Athletic reports.
After recently completing a pair of bullpen sessions, Gohara took another step forward in his recovery from a left shoulder issue by facing hitters. Assuming he reports no ill effects following Thursday's team off-day, Gohara will likely make his Grapefruit League debut at some point over the weekend.... See More ... See Less

Gohara (shoulder) will throw a live batting practice session Wednesday, 680 The Fan Atlanta reports.
