Twins' Stephen Gonsalves: Throws four innings in return from DL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gonsalves (shoulder) allowed two runs on two hits and one walk while striking out three batters over four innings in his first start of the season for Double-A Chattanooga on Saturday.

He did give up a homer after allowing three all of last year between High-A and Double-A (140 innings), but there were no reported issues with the shoulder, so it should be considered a successful 2017 debut for the lefty. Gonsalves does not have overpowering stuff and his walk rate has ticked up steadily as he's advanced up the minor-league ladder, but he gets swings and misses on the fastball (thanks in large part to a high spin rate), and he uses his plus changeup to keep hitters off balance. A cup of coffee in the major leagues late in the year is not out of the question.

Twins' Stephen Gonsalves: No structural damage in shoulder
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gonsalves' recent shoulder evaluation revealed no structural damage, Mike Berardino of the Pioneer Press reports.

This is a positive report for the young left-hander, who started the season on the disabled list due to a shoulder issue. There's still no firm timetable for his return, but the fact that he avoided any structural damage suggests that the Twins could start him back up on a throwing program before long.

Twins' Stephen Gonsalves: On DL with shoulder issue
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gonsalves (shoulder) is still weeks from returning from the disabled list, Chris Blessing of Baseball HQ reports.

Gonsalves was placed on the disabled list on April 6 and will continue to nurse a sore shoulder for the next couple weeks. Upon his return, Gonsalves figures to slot into the rotation at Double-A Chattanooga and work to continue his ascent through the Twins' farm system.

Twins' Stephen Gonsalves: Optioned to minor-league camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gonsalves was optioned to minor-league camp Monday, Rhett Bollinger of MLB.com reports.

Gonsalves appeared in three games for the Twins this spring, allowing no hits and issuing just one walk across 3.1 innings. He'll start the year in Triple-A Rochester and could eventually earn himself a call-up to Minnesota at some point in 2017.

Twins' Stephen Gonsalves: Won't suit up for USA on Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gonsalves is dealing with mild posterior weakness in his throwing shoulder and won't suit up for Team USA on Wednesday, Mike Berardino of the Pioneer Press reports.

Gonsalves reported the issue after his last outing of relief over the weekend, but it doesn't appear to be overly serious. Manager Paul Molitor said he isn't scheduled for an MRI, and will simply take the next few days off from throwing to recover. The injury is apparently in the same area that caused him to miss three weeks of the Arizona Fall League in 2016, so expect the Twins to be cautious with him.
