Nationals' Gio Gonzalez: Tosses clean inning to begin spring
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gonzalez struck out one in a shutout inning of work during Saturday's Grapefruit League opener against the Mets.

A Trea Turner throwing error allowed Jose Reyes to reach base to kick off the inning, but Gonzalez calmly retired the next three batters he saw, including a strikeout of Curtis Granderson. The veteran lefty heads into 2017 with a rotation spot locked up for the Nats, and will look to improve on last season's 4.57 ERA.

Nationals' Gio Gonzalez: Will start Grapefruit League opener
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gonzalez will get the start in the Nationals' spring training opener Saturday against the Mets, Jamal Collier of MLB.com reports.

The 31-year-old left-hander is looking to bounce back in 2017 after posting a 4.57 ERA last year, his worst performance since becoming a full-time starter for the A's in 2010. Gonzalez will be restricted to one inning or 25 pitches in his first outing of the spring.

Nationals' Gio Gonzalez: Has option picked up
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Nationals picked up Gonzalez's $12 million option for 2017 on Thursday, The Washington Post reports.

Thanks to an inflated 0.96 HR/9, his 4.57 ERA in 2016 was his highest since he became a full-time starter in the majors, but Gonzalez won at least 10 games for the seventh straight season and his 8.68 K/9 and 2.99 BB/9 were right in line with his career norms. More worryingly, the 31-year-old lefty's average fastball velocity dropped to 90.8 mph, more than a full mile per hour lower than 2015, but $12 million is still a relative bargain in today's marketplace for a pitcher who can consistently make 30-plus starts a year.

Nationals' Gio Gonzalez: Option likely to be picked up
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

The Nationals are likely to pick up Gonzalez's $12 million option for the 2017 season, Chelsea Janes of the Washington Post reports.

A $12 million vesting option in Gonzalez's contract would also kick in for 2018 if he throws 180 innings next season, which he hasn't done since the 2013 season. Gonzalez took a large step backward last season, with a 4.57 ERA representing his worst mark since 2009, but he remains a durable left-handed starter and that could easily be seen as a value worth $12 million. The Nationals already have Max Scherzer and Stephen Strasburg locked up until 2021 and a glut of young starters headlined by Lucas Giolito and Joe Ross, so Gonzalez's continued presence would mean one less spot for a pitcher like Reynaldo Lopez or A.J. Cole.

Nationals' Gio Gonzalez: Takes loss in rain-shortened game versus Arizona
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gonzalez (11-11) lasted just 3.2 innings, allowing three runs on eight hits in a rain-shortened loss to the Diamondbacks. He also struck out four and walked three.

With Stephen Strasburg out and Joe Ross still being stretched out, Washington is counting on Gonzalez for the postseason, and he is failing to deliver. He hasn't lasted longer than five innings in any of his recent three starts, and Washington has lost all three games. He finishes the regular season with a 4.57 ERA, 1.34 WHIP and 171 strikeouts in 177.1 innings.
