Luiz Gohara joins Triple-A Gwinnett for remainder of rehab

Braves lefty Luiz Gohara will make his next two rehab starts with Triple-A Gwinnett.

Gohara missed spring training with groin and ankle injuries. He’s healthy, but still catching up on the lost month.

The 21-year-old pitched 3-1/3 innings, allowing five runs (one earned) with four strikeouts and three walks Tuesday for Double-A Mississippi. He threw 35 strikes in 62 pitches.

“Reports (said) stuff didn’t look too bad, just rusty,” Braves manager Brian Snitker said. “His bullpen side was better. But he hadn’t been out there against competition in a while. So it’s more rusty, is what it said. It wasn’t terrible, just for his stuff, it’s an early spring training now.”

Gohara is scheduled to make his second start Sunday, with his next coming April 27. The organization has scheduled him through the next month, but will reassess after his third start.
