Gonzales allowed two runs on six hits and one walk across five innings in Sunday's loss to the Athletics. He struck out five and did not factor in the decision.
A pair of hits led to a run off Gonzales in the first, but the southpaw was able to settle down to keep the A's off the board during the next three frames. Oakland tagged him with one more run in the fifth when Chad Pinder drove in Sean Murphy with a two-out single. Gonzales ultimately took a no-decision after exiting with the game tied at 2-2. The left-hander concludes the season with a strong 3.10 ERA and 0.95 WHIP to go along with a 7-2 record.
Gonzales (7-2) tossed eight scoreless innings, allowing seven hits and a walk with six strikeouts in a win over the Astros on Monday.
Gonzales turned in a stellar performance Monday, and the Mariners' bats came alive in the seventh inning to give him a lead. The southpaw dropped his ERA to 3.06 with a 0.91 WHIP and 59:6 K:BB in 64.2 innings this season. Gonzales lines up for one more start in the regular season, which would be Sunday in Oakland.
Gonzales (6-2) picked up the win during a 6-5 victory over the A's in the first game of Monday's doubleheader, giving up five runs on six hits and a walk over six innings. He struck out seven.
He was engaged in what seemed like it was going to be a pitchers' duel with Jesus Luzardo through three innings before serving up homers to Sean Murphy and Marcus Semien in the fourth, but Gonzales persevered and was rewarded when the M's staged a comeback in the fifth and sixth frames. The veteran southpaw has won four straight starts, and he'll carry a stellar 3.49 ERA, 0.90 WHIP and 53:5 K:BB through 56.2 innings into his next outing Sept. 21, at home against the Astros.
Gonzales (5-2) picked up the win in Monday's 8-4 victory over the Rangers, allowing two runs on four hits over seven innings. He struck out seven without walking a batter.
The southpaw has now delivered quality starts in three of his last four outings and five of his last seven. Gonzales will take a career-best 3.02 ERA and 46:4 K:BB through 50.2 innings into his next start, currently scheduled for Sept. 14 as part of a homer doubleheader against the A's.
Gonzales (4-2) picked up the win Monday against the Angels, allowing one run on four hits and a walk while tossing his second career complete game. He struck out seven.
Gonzales fell behind 1-0 after allowing a solo homer to Justin Upton in the second inning, but that would be all the Angels could muster off the southpaw. The 28-year-old allowed just two hits across his final seven innings and the Mariners plated a pair of runs to get him his fourth win. The gem has Gonzales's ERA down to a strong 3.09 to go along with 39 strikeouts on the campaign. Seattle's pitching plans aren't clear at the moment, with the first two games of their scheduled series against Oakland being postponed. That being said, the lefty figures to take the ball some time during the weekend series against Texas.
Gonzales (3-2) allowed three runs on nine hits over five innings in a win over the Padres on Tuesday. He struck out five and did not issue a walk.
Road starts in San Diego are now rather scary with the way the Padres' offense has been rolling, but Gonzales managed to come away with the win, scattering his nine hits and limiting the damage to three runs. The lefty now has a 14:0 K:BB in his last two starts, both against tough opponents (he threw seven innings of one-run ball against the Dodgers on Aug. 18). Seattle has been going with a six-man rotation, so don't expect to see Gonzales on the mound until next Monday against the Angels.
Gonzales didn't factor into the decision in Tuesday's 2-1 loss to the Dodgers, giving up one run on five hits over seven innings. He struck out a season-high nine without walking a batter.
The southpaw found himself locked in a pitcher's duel with Tony Gonsolin, and while Gonzales did come away with his third quality start in five outings, the Mariners couldn't scrape together enough offense to get him into the win column. Gonzales will take a 3.34 ERA, 0.88 WHIP and 26:3 K:BB through 29.2 innings into his next start, currently scheduled for Aug. 25 in San Diego.
Gonzales (2-2) was tagged with the loss Tuesday against the Rangers. He gave up four runs on seven hits and one walk while fanning two across five innings.
Gonzales threw 61 of his 89 pitches for strikes, but he surrendered two runs in the first inning and two more during the third -- those early struggles were the reason why he was tagged with his second loss of the campaign. The 28-year-old lefty has a 3.97 ERA and an elite 0.97 WHIP in 22.2 innings this season ahead of his next scheduled start on the road against the Dodgers on Aug. 18.
Gonzales (2-1) earned the win Wednesday against the Angels after giving up three runs on three hits -- all of them home runs -- while striking out seven across seven innings.
Gonzales allowed homers to Max Stassi in the third, and both David Fletcher and Mike Trout in the sixth, but he was excellent the rest of the way while posting his second straight quality start. The long ball has been an issue early in the season, however, as he has already given up four homers in just 17.2 innings. That's an area where he needs to improve ahead of his next start, scheduled for Aug. 11 against the Rangers on the road.
Gonzales (1-1) allowed two unearned runs on three hits and a walk while striking out six over 6.1 innings in a win over the Angels on Thursday.
Gonzales' only blemish was a fifth-inning two-run home run by Angels catcher Max Stassi, but due to an earlier error, the runs were unearned. The 28-year-old Gonzales made improvements over his previous outing, when he allowed four runs (three earned) in 4.1 innings versus the Astros. The southpaw maintains his status as the Mariners' ace and will likely get a rematch at home versus the Angels on Wednesday.
Gonzales (0-1) surrendered four runs (three earned) on five hits and a walk in 4.1 innings. He struck out two in a loss to the Astros on Friday.
Gonzales allowed an RBI single to Martin Maldonado in the third inning before the wheels came off completely in the fifth for the southpaw. The 28-year-old Gonzales has collected 29 wins in 63 starts over the last two seasons. He'll look for his first victory of 2020 when he faces the Angels on the road Thursday.
Gonzales, the Mariners' Opening Day starter, was impressive over his four-inning start in Saturday's intrasquad game, Shannon Drayer of 710 ESPN Seattle reports. "I feel ready to go, my body feels strong," said Gonzales following his outing.
The southpaw allowed two runs on five hits and a wild pitch while recording three strikeouts, but he arguably performed even better than the line indicates. Drayer reports the first run was partly manufactured by a Mallex Smith popup bunt, with the speedy outfielder subsequently advancing on Gonzales' errant offering. Gonzales also didn't allow much hard contact outside of a double he surrendered to Evan White, and he was efficient enough to reach his 50-pitch limit across four frames instead of three. It remains to be seen how long Gonzales will be allowed to go Opening Day against the Astros, but with manager Scott Servais planning a six-man rotation, it's likely his workload will be relatively abbreviated.
Gonzales recorded four strikeouts over his two-inning appearance in Sunday's intrasquad game, Greg Johns of MLB.com reports.
The Opening Day starter generated a mixed bag of a performance in his penultimate intrasquad start, allowing two runs on two hits and two walks over his pair of frames. Gonzales declared himself "as ready as I'm going to be" ahead of Opening Day after putting in steady work during the shutdown, and despite the unsteady line Sunday, he came away satisfied with his time on the mound. "A little bit of timing things here and there," he said. "Some kinks to work out. But, overall, it felt good with the fastball, and I located most of my pitches. It just felt good to compete again in a game-like situation."
Manager Scott Servais confirmed Wednesday that Gonzales will start the Mariners' July 24 season opener versus the Astros, Corey Brock of The Athletic reports.
Servais added that Gonzales will make his first start of summer camp in Sunday's intrasquad game, which would keep the lefty on pace to make one more turn beyond that before the Mariners head to Houston for the opener. With few other established options in the Seattle rotation, Gonzales was the logical choice for the Opening Day nod after starting 63 games across the past tow seasons and accruing a 3.99 ERA over that span.
Gonzales threw 40-50 pitches in the bullpen during the Mariners' first day of summer camp Friday, Greg Johns of MLB.com reports.
The projected Opening Day starter was excited to get back to throwing off a dirt mound for the first time in months, and his arm seemed to be in good condition after he regularly worked off turf during the shutdown. Gonzales had progressed up to 60 pitches in his final Cactus League start back in March, and given the workload he tolerated during his first day of summer camp, he should be able to handle a pitch count close to normal by the time the regular season arrives.
Gonzales is back in his West Seattle home and is keeping his arm in shape on an offseason routine, Greg Johns of MLB.com reports.
Johns reports the left-hander is throwing and playing long toss with teammate Patrick Wisdom on what normally would be his December routine, acting on the assumption that he'll still have about a three-to-four-week ramp-up period before the regular season begins. Gonzales does have a full basement gym at his disposal and feels confident he'll be able to get fully back on track mentally once MLB has a firm re-start date. "I think once we kind of have a date on the books, things will become clearer for us," he said. "It is an interesting thing for an athlete to go through to have a start of the season on the books, and then to have that scratched. And now we don't know when we're going to start or if we're going to start, so it is kind of a confusing time right now."
Gonzales started a rain-shortened Cactus League win over a Padres split squad on Wednesday and allowed two runs (one earned) on four hits and two walks over 3.1 innings. He struck out five.
The left-hander bounced back nicely after a rough outing in his first spring start, allowing just Thursday's earned run over 6.1 innings combined across his last two appearances. Greg Johns of MLB.com reports Gonzales would have been in line for two more Cactus League outings had the remainder of spring training not been suspended due to concerns surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic, but all that is up in the air now. Johns adds Gonzales' removal in the fourth inning was due to the 28-year-old having reached a 60-plus pitch count and not because of any injury-related issue. "I was a lot more crisp than the last couple times out," Gonzales said. "I'm definitely feeling confident with my fastball and landing some off-speed pitches. So that was great. I had the walks and some little mistakes here and there, but overall I felt pretty sharp."
Gonzales threw 61 pitches in a "B" game on the back field of the Mariners' spring training complex Friday, Daniel Kramer of MLB.com reports.
The left-hander was scratched from Friday's Cactus League start against the Dodgers in order to clear the path for some younger arms to gain game experience, but Gonzales still got his work in versus Shed Long, Dee Gordon, Cal Raleigh and Austin Shenton. Gonzales is slated to return to Cactus League action at some point next week.
Gonzales will pitch in an intersquad game Friday rather than start the Mariners' Cactus League matchup against the Dodgers, Greg Johns of MLB.com reports.
The 28-year-old is expected to throw 3-4 innings during an intersquad game at the team complex Friday afternoon. The sudden change of plans is not injury-related and Gonzales will likely make his third Cactus League outing sometime next week. The southpaw will look to build upon a career-low 3.99 ERA last season during his fourth campaign in Seattle in 2020.
Gonzales started Saturday's Cactus League loss to the Royals, firing three scoreless innings during which he allowed one hit and recorded two strikeouts.
The young left-hander raised some eyebrows in his first start of the spring Monday when he allowed five earned runs on three hits and two walks over two-thirds of an inning versus the Cubs. However, Gonzales turned in a polar-opposite effort Saturday. Greg Johns of MLB.com reports Gonzales credited a "better pregame routine" with helping him turn things around against Kansas City, as well as a focus on making his delivery more compact. He'll look to build on his momentum in his next spring turn, which is likely to come toward the end of the week.
