After a disappointing 2018, Braves pitcher Luiz Gohara is ready to put the lost season behind him as he’s lost weight entering Spring Training; ready to live up to the potential he showed in 2017.

With Gohara's injuries behind him, Carl Dukes asked if Gohara could be one of the young arms Braves fans have been waiting on.


“Last spring he showed up weighing 315 pounds, had a slew of injuries and the Braves told him he had to lose weight," said Dukes. "Gohara has the potential to be a stud."

Mike Bell said that he can relate with Gohara's struggles after the death of his father.

“He lost his dad, unexpectedly, before last season and that’s hard," Bell said. "Look, he’s leaner coming into this season, and the team was blown away by how he showed up to spring training.”
