2014 Gaudin was a pleasant surprise in a year when the Giants had precious few. Pressed into a starter role when the rotation was hit with injuries and ineffectiveness, Gaudin made 12 starts and ended up with the Giants' second-best ERA as a starter. That helped him hit free agency with a little bit of gloss, but only a little bit: His success is quickly tracked back to his home ballpark, where he didn't allow a single home run. On the road, he was the 4.41-ERA Gaudin you'd expect. Carpal Tunnel Syndrome ended his season in August, so whichever team signs him this winter should invest in an ergonomic chair.
2013 Look out, Octavio Dotel! The ancient setup man set a major-league record when he signed with the Tigers, his 13th organization, last winter—but Gaudin, who will only be 30 on Opening Day, put a ninth uniform in his collection when he signed a minor-league contract with the Giants in December. A sinker-slider righty with experience in a variety of roles, Gaudin should be in line for a major-league bullpen job even if he doesn't stick with the Giants.
2012 Nothing gets you in the spotlight faster than two stints with the Yankees, and nothing gets you out of it faster than a year in the Nationals and Blue Jays organizations, as Chad Gaudin learned the hard way.
2011 Released by the Yankees at the end of spring training, Gaudin hooked on with the A’s, rapidly pitched himself off the team, and rebounded back to the Bronx, the Yankees in the interim having lost their intended jack-of-all-trades pitcher, Aceves. Whereas Aceves actually has value in the swingman role, Gaudin is more of a hack of all trades. While his slider once inspired hope of future dominance, now it mainly inspires home runs—had Gaudin’s rate of 2.2 home runs per nine innings qualified, it would have easily led the majors. Gaudin needs to find a team with a large park and a pitching coach with a track record of fixing misfit toys, but he signed a minor-league deal with the Washington Nationals instead.
2010 The Fireman of Atlantis. Once acquired by the Yankees, Gaudin was continually held in reserve for emergency starts that never had to be made. This was in part understandable, but the failure to give Gaudin a chance meant the preservation of Sergio Mitre in the starting rotation—the Yankees had nothing to lose by giving Gaudin a few more spins. The well-traveled righty retains his fine swing-and-miss slider; the inability to command it is what keeps him on the fringes of major-league pitching staffs.
2009 On the crowded list of potential fifth starters who might replace Jason Marquis, Gaudin rates behind Sean Marshall but ahead of Rich Hill and Charlie Root. That's something of a shame given his successes as a starter (including four quality starts in six for the A's last year), but he's a bit Marquis-like in his profligate generation of baserunners, and short right-handed starters scare too many people in the industry, even when they throw in the low 90s. At least the Cajun can count on being in demand as a roommate for his cooking skills, but he's wasted as just an extra arm.
2008 Gaudin always put up gaudy numbers in the minor leagues, but scouts saw him as a short right-hander with a good slider and little more. He finally got his shot in 2007, and the results were so-so. While he had a league-average ERA, when you allow more than 200 hits and have a triple-figure walk total, your future isn't especially bright. Complicating that future is off-season hip surgery that has his early-2008 availability in question.
2007 As Gaudin was tearing through the Devil Rays` system and making his MLB debut at 20, there was talk about his slider already ranking among the very best in the game. Things didn`t work out with Tampa Bay, and Gaudin lasted just one year with the Blue Jays despite a solid season with Syracuse. He seems to have found a home in the Oakland bullpen despite his brilliant numbers as a starter with Sacramento, but a note of caution considering his awful K/BB ratio is definitely in order. We can`t take that 3.09 ERA seriously, but Gaudin still has that good slider, and he doesn`t turn 24 until this spring, so he figures to be a capable back-of-the-bullpen guy in 2007, with possibilities beyond.
2006 Gaudin excelled after finally getting a chance to work consistently in the high minors; the Devil Rays had decided that his best development program was to jump three levels at once. His strikeout rate was good, but even more impressive was his improved command. It`s difficult to assess players who have been jerked around the way Gaudin has, but any way you look at it, the Jays turned him around. This winter`s roster space crunch made him available, and he was traded to Toronto`s green and gold cousins (the A`s for a PTBNL).
2005 Gaudin did some impressive work in the low minors in '02 and '03, but in this case the Rays' rapid promotion policy (to the majors with only three games above A-ball, though one of the three was a perfect game) went awry. His major and minor league component statistics are very similar. The only difference is that in the minors he gave up 19 fewer hits than expected from his team rate on balls in play, while in the majors he's given up 11 more. Gaudin was traded to the Blue Jays, who intend to give him some of the Triple-A experience he's missed.
2004 Gaudin's a small righty with solid control and good stuff. So what the hell is he doing in the major leagues at age 20? Was there a pennant race going on that we somehow missed? Are the Devil Rays so worried about their minor league instructors screwing kids up that they'll pull them out of the minors to join a moribund major league club and burn their early service time? Is the goal here to make sure that any player who turns out to be good quickly becomes too expensive to keep around? His peripheral numbers are pretty good, and Gaudin's got a chance to be a contributor to a major league club. Why they moved him from High-A to Double-A is pretty clear. Why they moved him from Double-A to the pigs after a perfect game is less clear, and borderline nuts. The Rays should put Gaudin at Triple-A to start next season. and let him learn how to pitch, and control the load on his arm.

2012-01-12 13:00:00 (link to chat)Which pitchers stand out as personal favorites that never panned out like you thought they would?
(PepeShady from St Paul)
Bret Saberhagen. Kevin Appier. I was sure both of them would be Hall of Famers. Though if Jack Morris gets in, I may start pushing their candidacies a little harder. Apparently you never know. They can get back on the ballot, right?

More recently, I had high hopes for Brett Anderson. I guess he may yet fulfill those. Erik Bedard...I sense a theme. I've been a big Gavin Floyd fan for a while, and though he's been good, he's never broken through to great. On a much lower tier, Chad Gaudin. (Mike Fast)
2010-09-13 13:00:00 (link to chat)Given how dominant Albaladejo was in Triple A (yesterday notwithstanding), did the Yankees wait to call him up so long merely because of issues with number of options left, or was there something else?
(Ethan from New York, NY)
I'm not sure what to make of Albaladejo's limited usage at the big-league level thus far except to note that Kerry Wood's arrival and subsequent strong performance came right as it looked as though he might get his first real shot of the year. I still think he can help this bullpen more than, say, Chad Gaudin. (Jay Jaffe)
2009-11-02 15:00:00 (link to chat)The yankees have to just win one out of three games. Why not start Gaudin tonight against Cliff Lee, and have Burnett on full rest +1 for game 6 in the Bronx?
(Mike from Chicago)
Because A.J. Burnett/3 and Andy Pettitte/3 are better than Chad Gaudin/32 and A.J. Burnett/5. And because you don't get cute in the World Series. Well, unless you're up one run in the eighth inning. (Joe Sheehan)
2009-10-13 14:00:00 (link to chat)Hey Christina, Thoughts on the Yankees' rotation and roster for the ALCS? Any predictions?
(Eli from Brooklyn)
I'm probably one of the most outspoken fans of Chad Gaudin there is, but no way does he wind up with a Game Four start. I like the decision to carry Cervelli, given that they're going to start Molina a couple of times out. If there's a bit of waffling, it's whether they might want a pinch-runner, but with Hairston and Gardner around, they're not exactly without one already, and with Gaudin in the pen, they're not wrecked during one of the rare back-to-back ballgames if a starting pitcher exits early in the first one. (Christina Kahrl)
2009-09-21 14:00:00 (link to chat)Hey Jay, I'm pretty concerned about the Yankees rotation entering the postseason. The first round should work to their favor (assuming the enter with the AL's best record) with 2 days of rest and a 3 man rotation. However, if it comes to the ALCS and a 4 man rotation, what do you anticipate?? Will they even bother starting Joba at this point? Thanks.
(tbrown05 from vt)
I think yesterday's start might have sealed the deal on the team's first-round decision, given how awful Joba was, and assuming Pettitte comes back in one piece. Beyond that... well, it's been so long since the Yankees got out of the first round I'm not really sure what to expect. I do think the odds of Chad Gaudin getting an October start just spiked. (Jay Jaffe)
2009-04-06 13:00:00 (link to chat)Are Dallas MacPherson and Chad Gaudin going to get major league jobs after being recently waived? If so, where?
(Peeig13 from The Second City)
Gaudin can relieve for many teams, and will probably have his choice. The Rangers, Pirates, Padres, Nationals...he'll have options. I'm trying to understand how a team can release McPherson, then trade for Ross Gload. (Joe Sheehan)
2008-03-06 13:00:00 (link to chat)I've seen some projections that suggest it's the A's who are in the best position to take advantage of a stumble from Anahiem than the Mariners are. First, how credible is that? And second, if that is credible, how much worse does that make Bavasi's win-now plan?
(Evan from Vancouver, BC)
I don't see this at all. The A's are in full-on rebuilding mode, and behind Joe Blanton they need a lot to hope that Rich Harden, Justin Duchscherer, and Chad Gaudin are healthy. Add to that the need for sick-noters like Eric Chavez and Bobby Crosby to bounce back and I think we're at the point where it's far more likely Blanton gets shipped out at the deadline than the A's contend.

I'm not about to defend Bavasi, but I don't see the M's overtaken by Oakland this year. (Jay Jaffe)

2009-10-28 17:00:002009 WS Game OneAgree. Ask him how he feels Saturday morning. All you're doing is skipping the throw day, which no one is throwing at this point in the season (save Chad Gaudin) anyway. (Will Carroll)
2009-10-28 17:00:002009 WS Game OneNow that you mention the 9-man pens, will someone like Bruney (with the long layoff) get the Chad Gaudin treatment, where he's only used in emergencies or deep into extras and Girardi's running out of options? (Steph Bee)
2009-10-12 15:00:00Phillies/Rockies Playoffs RoundtableMaggie (Washington, D.C.): Given that the Angels have a better front four, their best lineup ever, and a better manager, why is everybody so convinced that the Yankees will win the ALCS?

Is their lineup REALLY that good? I see a lot of BA that might not happen against good pitching, not to mention some ill-considered baserunning. I'm not sure the front four is that much better. I guess Saunders is better than Chad Gaudin, but Sabathia/Burnett/Pettitte can be pretty good. (Steven Goldman)
