Gohara gave up seven hits and six runs (four earned) in four innings Friday against Durham and had three walks with four strikeouts.
“Just rusty, I think,” Snitker said.
Gohara, a stocky 21-year-old, impressed in five September starts for Atlanta and was the No. 23 prospect in Baseball America’s preseason Top 100.
He didn’t pitch in any Grapefruit League games this spring and in his rehab starts he allowed 14 hits, six earned runs and six walks with 12 strikeouts in 11-1/3 innings.
The best of the three rehab starts was an April 22 game against Pawtucket in which he allowed two hits and one earned run with no walks and four strikeouts in four innings. In his other two outings he allowed three walks in each along with 12 hits in a combined 7-1/3 innings.
