Top Chi Chi Gonzalez News

  • Tigers' Chi Chi Gonzalez: Agrees to deal with Tigers

    Gonzalez signed a minor-league contract with the Tigers on Tuesday.

    Gonzalez had been a free agent since declining an assignment to Triple-A by the Brewers earlier this month, but he was able to land a spot with another squad. While he will open his Tigers tenure in the minors, he could see big-league time at some point before the season comes to a close.

  • Chi Chi Gonzalez: Elects free agency

    Gonzalez elected free agency after clearing waivers Saturday.

    Gonzalez has thrown 18.1 innings this season between brief stints for the Twins and Brewers, struggling to a 6.87 ERA and 15.2 percent strikeout rate. Those numbers aren't too far from his career 5.72 ERA and 13.5 percent strikeout rate over parts of six major-league seasons, so he'll likely be stuck searching for a minor-league deal on the open market.

  • Brewers' Chi Chi Gonzalez: Loses 40-man roster spot

    The Brewers designated Gonzalez for assignment Tuesday.

    Since Gonzalez doesn't have minor-league options remaining, he'll come off both the 40-man roster and 26-man active roster with the Brewers needing to clear room on the latter roster for outfielder Hunter Renfroe (calf), who was reinstated from the 10-day injured list. After being claimed off waivers from the Twins on June 14, Gonzalez made four appearances (two starts) for Milwaukee, giving up eight earned runs on 12 hits and four walks over 11.1 innings.

  • Brewers' Chi Chi Gonzalez: Moves to bullpen

    Gonzalez struck out two and allowed two hits and no walks over three scoreless innings of long relief in Saturday's 7-4 loss to the Pirates.

    Gonzalez had started in his first two appearances with Milwaukee following his June 20 addition to the 26-man active roster, but with both Aaron Ashby and Brandon Woodruff having returned from the injured list in recent days, the team no longer has a spot available in the rotation for the journeyman right-hander. Though Adrian Houser (elbow) was moved to the IL the same day Ashby was reinstated, the Brewers will turn to Jason Alexander to replace Houser as the team's fifth starter in Tuesday's game against the Cubs. Gonzalez will likely serve as a lower-leverage long-relief option while he remains up with the big club.

  • Brewers' Chi Chi Gonzalez: Allows three runs in win

    Gonzalez did not factor into the decision against the Blue Jays on Sunday, allowing three runs on four hits while striking out three and walking two over four innings.

    The three earned runs that Gonzalez allowed all came on an Alejandro Kirk homer in the top of the first inning. Gonzalez has allowed exactly three earned runs in all four games he has started this season, going four innings in three of them and three innings in the other. The righty will take a 7.20 ERA into his next appearance.

  • Brewers' Chi Chi Gonzalez: Starting Sunday

    Gonzalez is starting Sunday's game against the Blue Jays, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports.

    Gonzalez made his Brewers debut as a starter Tuesday against the Cardinals and allowed three runs on four hits and a walk while striking out two in four innings to take the loss. He'll make at least one more turn through the rotation, but it's possible that he shifts to the bullpen following Sunday's start since Brandon Woodruff (hand) will return to action next week.

  • Brewers' Chi Chi Gonzalez: Loses in Milwaukee debut

    Gonzalez (0-1) took the loss Tuesday against St. Louis, allowing three runs on four hits and a walk while striking out two in four innings.

    Gonzalez got off to a rough start, allowing two runs on three hits in the first inning. In the fourth, Nolan Gorman tagged him with a solo homer. Gonzalez was claimed off waivers by the Brewers last week and took over Aaron Ashby's (forearm) spot in the rotation Tuesday. It's unknown if the 30-year-old will make another start for the Brewers, move to the bullpen or be a roster casualty moving forward.

  • Brewers' Chi Chi Gonzalez: Making spot start

    Gonzalez will start Tuesday's game against the Cardinals, Sophia Minnaert of Bally Sports Wisconsin reports.

    Gonzalez was scooped up by the Brewers nearly one week ago, and he'll be thrown into action Tuesday with Aaron Ashby (forearm) getting sent to the 15-day injured list Monday afternoon. Gonzalez made two starts earlier this month for the Twins, both in similar situations. He surrendered six total runs on 12 hits and struck out four over seven frames.

  • Brewers' Chi Chi Gonzalez: Claimed by Brewers

    Gonzalez was claimed off waivers by the Brewers on Tuesday.

    Gonzalez has made two starts for the Twins this season, giving up six runs on 12 hits across seven innings while walking just four batters. Those outings raised his career ERA to 5.69. He was designated for assignment by Minnesota on Saturday but will wind up sticking in the big leagues, presumably in a bullpen role for his new team.

  • Twins' Chi Chi Gonzalez: Designated for assignment

    Gonzalez was designated for assignment by the Twins on Saturday following his start against the Rays, Do-Hyoung Park of MLB.com reports.

    Gonzalez lasted just four innings, giving up three runs on eight hits while striking out three batters. He now owns a 7.71 ERA through two starts this season and a 5.69 career mark, which makes him unlikely to get claimed off waivers.

  • Twins' Chi Chi Gonzalez: Called up to start

    Gonzalez was called up from Triple-A St. Paul on Saturday.

    Gonzalez started a game for the Twins earlier this month, and he will get a chance to make his second big-league appearance of the season Saturday. He tossed just 45 pitches in his first major-league game of the season, so there's no guarantee he goes particularly deep into Saturday's contest.

  • Twins' Chi Chi Gonzalez: Starting for Twins on Saturday

    Gonzalez will start Saturday's game against the Rays, Do-Hyoung Park of MLB.com reports.

    Gonzalez headed back to the minors after making a spot start for the Twins last week, but he'll make his second major-league appearance of the season as Saturday's starter. The right-hander threw 45 pitches during Friday's start against the Blue Jays and allowed three runs on four hits and no walks while striking out one in three innings.

  • Twins' Chi Chi Gonzalez: Returned to minors

    Gonzalez was returned to Triple-A St. Paul on Saturday.

    Gonzalez made a spot start against the Blue Jays on Friday and allowed three runs on four hits and no walks while striking out one in three innings. However, he'll head back to the minors after Gilberto Celestino was reinstated from the COVID-19 injured list. Gonzalez will remain on the Twins' taxi squad during their road trip in Toronto before heading back to St. Paul.

  • Twins' Chi Chi Gonzalez: Short outing Friday

    Gonzalez didn't factor into the decision in Friday's 9-3 win over the Blue Jays, giving up three runs on four hits over three innings. He struck out one without walking a batter.

    While Minnesota's offense was busy launching five homers on the night, Gonzalez served up two of his own and exited after only 45 pitches (32 strikes). The right-hander had worked at least five innings in four straight starts for Triple-A St. Paul, so the early hook was purely merit-based. Gonzalez has a career 5.68 ERA in the majors, and there's no reason to think he'll keep a roster spot once any of Joe Ryan (COVID-19), Sonny Gray (pectoral) or Josh Winder (shoulder) are ready to return to action.

  • Twins' Chi Chi Gonzalez: Promoted ahead of start

    Gonzalez's contract was purchased from Triple-A St. Paul ahead of his Friday start against the Blue Jays.

    The 30-year-old righty was once a top prospect in the Rangers system. He had a 3.44 ERA, 1.25 WHIP and 13.9 K-BB% in 36.2 innings at Triple-A. This is expected to just be a spot start, but if Gonzalez impresses, he could be back up the next time the Twins need a fill-in starter.

  • Twins' Chi Chi Gonzalez: In line to start Friday

    Gonzalez joined the Twins' taxi squad Thursday and is expected to be formally called up from Triple-A St. Paul to start Friday's game in Toronto, Betsy Helfand of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

    Gonzalez will likely be making just one start with the Twins before returning to the minors, as Minnesota is expected to get at least one of Josh Winder (shoulder) or Joe Ryan (illness) back next week from the 15-day injured list or COVID-19-related IL, respectively. The 30-year-old Gonzalez owns a 5.64 ERA and 3.7 K-BB% across 261.2 career innings in the big leagues, but he's upped his strikeout rate to 23.2 percent over 36.2 frames at Triple-A this season.

  • Twins' Chi Chi Gonzalez: Reassigned to minor-league camp

    Gonzalez was reassigned to minor-league spring training Wednesday.

    Gonzalez served as a non-roster invitee to begin camp, but he failed to secure an Opening Day roster spot after giving up nine runs in 4.1 innings across two spring starts. He'll be an option to serve as a spot starter for Minnesota in 2022.

  • Twins' Chi Chi Gonzalez: Joins Minnesota

    Gonzalez signed Sunday with the Twins on a minor-league contract that includes an invitation to big-league spring training.

    Minnesota will waste no time integrating Gonzalez into its Grapefruit League pitching schedule, as he's scheduled to start Monday's game against the Orioles. Though he's attending big-league camp, Gonzalez is expected to open the 2022 campaign as a member of the Triple-A St. Paul rotation. He spent the 2021 season in the Rockies organization, making 24 appearances (18 starts) with the big club and posting a 6.46 ERA and 1.52 WHIP in 101.2 innings.
