Gonzalez (COVID-19 injured list) made his first rehab start for the Rockies' rookie-level Arizona Complex League affiliate Friday, tossing 2.2 scoreless innings while striking out four and scattering three hits and a walk.

Since he received the green light to head to the ACL, Gonzalez appears to have cleared all COVID-19 health and safety protocols and is in the process of building up again following the shutdown. Before being placed on the IL, Gonzalez had been making regular starts for the Rockies, but he may not have a rotation spot waiting for him with the big club once he's activated. Over 90.2 innings in the majors this season, Gonzalez has posted a 6.06 ERA and 1.46 WHIP.
