Gonzalez allowed three runs on eight hits and two walks while striking out five over five innings Monday against the Twins. He did not factor into the decision.
Gonzales gave up an early run in the first thanks to three singles, and he was tagged for two more runs on a pair of solo homers before his day was over. The 29-year-old has been unable to top five innings in three outings since returning from the injured list and has been a major disappointment after a stellar 2020 season, as he owns a 5.44 ERA and 36:15 K:BB over 41.1 innings. He's currently lined up to face the red-hot Rays this weekend in Seattle.
Gonzales (1-4) was tagged with the loss Tuesday against the Tigers after allowing four runs on five hits and a walk while fanning two across four innings.
Gonzales didn't have his best stuff Tuesday and this outing was a clear step in the wrong direction, as he was coming off four straight appearances in which he allowed two or fewer runs. The left-hander owns a 5.45 ERA across 36.1 innings on the season and is scheduled to take the mound during next week's series at home against the Twins.
Gonzales took the no-decision Tuesday in a 6-5 loss to Oakland, pitching four innings and allowing one run on two hits and a walk with six strikeouts.
Gonzales made his return after missing over a month with a forearm injury and didn't miss a beat as it only took him 50 pitches to get through four innings while allowing just the one run. Although he didn't pitch long enough to qualify for the win, the Mariners bullpen blew a three-run lead anyway so it wouldn't have mattered. Gonzales will look to build on the encouraging start as he lines up to face Detroit next Tuesday.
Gonzales (forearm) was reinstated from the 10-day injured list ahead of Tuesday's start against the Athletics.
Gonzales missed just over a month due to a mild forearm strain and will be on a pitch count during his first appearance Tuesday. The southpaw is expected to pitch between three and four innings. He posted a 5.40 ERA and 1.34 WHIP in 28.1 innings across five starts earlier this season.
Gonzales (forearm) is slated to start Tuesday's game against the Athletics, Shannon Drayer of 710 ESPN Seattle reports.
Gonzales will return to the major-league mound after an absence of just over a month due to a mild forearm strain. The southpaw will be on a pitch count during Tuesday's start and is expected to pitch between three and four innings. Gonzales made five starts prior to his injury and posted a 5.40 ERA and 1.34 WHIP in 28.1 innings.
Mariners manager Scott Servais said Wednesday that he's hopeful Gonzales (forearm) will be able to return from the 10-day injured list when his next turn through the rotation comes up June 1 versus the Athletics, Daniel Kramer of MLB.com reports.
Seattle has mostly kept its six-man rotation intact since Gonzales strained his forearm during an April 27 start, relying mostly on bullpen days for the lefty's turns through the rotation due to the lack of healthy starting options available on the 40-man roster. Gonzales, meanwhile, has made solid progress in his rehab program of late, most recently throwing an extended simulated game. Servais doesn't believe that Gonzales will require a minor-league rehab assignment before being activated, and the southpaw isn't expected to require any major restrictions with his workload once he's deemed ready to go.
Gonzales (forearm) is slated to throw a 45-to-50-pitch simulated game this week, the Associated Press reports.
Gonzales completed multiple throwing sessions last week without setbacks, setting up this next step in his recovery process. If the left-hander is able to get through the sim game in similarly successful fashion, he could be deemed ready for activation without the need for a rehab assignment.
Gonzales (forearm) threw off a mound for the second straight day Tuesday without setbacks, Shannon Drayer of 710 ESPN Seattle reports.
The left-hander is getting closer to the one-month mark with respect to his injured-list stint, but with back-to-back days free of health-related snags, he could also be ready to face live hitters before the end of the week. If all continues to go smoothly for Gonzales, he could be deemed ready for activation before the end of the month without the need for a rehab assignment.
Gonzales (forearm) successfully threw 15 short-distance pitches off a mound Monday and is scheduled to throw again Tuesday, Shannon Drayer of 710 ESPN Seattle reports.
Drayer notes that Gonzales felt strong on the hill Monday and that if all goes well Tuesday, he could be on track to throw a bullpen session Friday. The southpaw was placed on the 10-day injured list April 29 with a mild forearm strain.
Gonzales (forearm) will throw off a mound Monday for the first time since landing on the injured list, Shannon Drayer of 710 ESPN Seattle reports.
The 29-year-old landed on the shelf with a mild forearm strain April 29 and has been throwing off flat ground, but Monday will be his first time throwing off a mound since suffering the injury. Gonzales was initially expected to face a short absence, but the left-hander likely will need some time to build his stamina back up after being limited for the past couple weeks.
Gonzales (forearm) could advance to mound work as soon as this weekend, Shannon Drayer of 710 ESPN Seattle reports.
Gonzales has been out for eight days with a forearm strain, which is considered mild. His return date remains unclear, but the Mariners' plans should be clarified once the lefty gets back on the mound.
Mariners manager Scott Servais said Gonzales (forearm) was able to throw off flat ground Sunday, Lauren Smith of The Tacoma News Tribune reports.
Gonzales was placed on the 10-day injured list Thursday with a mild left forearm strain, but the fact that he was able to play catch three days later suggests that he could be in store for a brief stay on the shelf. The Mariners likely won't iron out a firm target date for Gonzales' return until he resumes facing hitters in a live batting practice session or simulated game. Seattle isn't expected to shorten its rotation to five men while Gonzales is sidelined, but the team could opt for bullpen games when the southpaw's turn comes up rather than appointing a sixth starter.
Gonzales was placed on the injured list with a mild forearm strain Thursday, Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times reports.
The Mariners haven't offered a precise timeline for Gonzales' return, but he's expected to miss at least a couple starts, which seemingly means he'll be out for longer than the minimum 10 days. Domingo Tapia was recalled in a corresponding move.
Gonzales (1-3) took the loss against Houston on Tuesday, pitching six innings and allowing two runs on five hits and three walks while striking out four.
Gonzales wasn't quite as effective as in his prior outing, when he yielded only one run across seven innings against the Dodgers, but he repeated the unenviable feat of taking a loss in spite of registering a quality start. The southpaw held Houston scoreless in each inning except the fourth, when the Astros put up the only pair of runs in the game. The positive takeaway is that Gonzales appears to have fully turned things around after a poor start to the campaign in which he gave up 12 earned runs across his first 10.1 frames. He'll face Baltimore at home in his next scheduled start Monday.
Gonzales (1-2) took the loss Tuesday against the Dodgers despite allowing one run on two hits with six strikeouts and one walk across seven innings.
Gonzales and Julio Urias were engaged in a pitcher's duel Tuesday, and the two offenses combined for one run on three hits all afternoon. It's a brutal loss for Gonzales, but the performance remains a welcome sight after he surrendered 12 runs over his first two starts of the season. The 29-year-old will look to build on that performance early next week at Houston.
Gonzales (1-1) allowed two runs on three hits while walking two and striking out five across five innings to earn the win in Game 1 of Thursday's doubleheader against the Orioles.
Gonzales began the season by allowing 12 earned runs across 10.1 innings while surrendering five home runs in his first two starts. It looked to be more of the same Thursday when he allowed a two-run home run in the opening frame, though he settled in from there to turn in his first solid outing of the campaign. Despite the positive outcome, the outing still had its flaws, as Gonzales has now surrendered multiple walks in all three of his turns through the rotation and maintains a 4.1 BB/9. He's currently projected to draw his next start Thursday at Boston.
Gonzales (0-1) was charged with the loss against the Twins on Thursday after surrendering seven runs on nine hits and a pair of walks while striking out six across 4.1 innings.
After struggling in his Opening Day debut during which he gave up a career-high-tying five runs and three walks, Gonzales fell apart once again, this time serving up a pair of home runs while continuing to struggle with his command. Across 10.1 innings, the southpaw has allowed 12 runs and five walks, not quite the numbers you want to see. Gonzales will get a chance to turn things around with a road start next Thursday at Baltimore.
Gonzales gave up five earned runs on eight hits and three walks while striking out two in six innings Thursday against the Giants. He did not factor in the decision.
The three walks compared to two strikeouts are particularly worrisome for Gonzales, who relies on locating and sequencing his pitches to make up for a lack of lights-out stuff. He lines up to start in Minnesota on Thursday, which should put the confidence of his fantasy managers to the test.
Gonzales allowed six earned runs on nine hits and two walks over five innings in a Cactus League loss to the Padres on Friday. He struck out four.
Gonzales won't exactly head into his projected Opening Day start against the Giants on Thursday with much momentum, as he gave up a combined 11 earned runs on 18 hits, three walks and a hit batsman over his last two Cactus League starts. The left-hander did provide glimpses of his customary form in his first two trips to the mound this spring (six scoreless innings), so the hope is he was simply working through some kinks in these last two outings.
Gonzales allowed five earned runs on nine hits, a walk and a hit batsman across 4.2 innings in a Cactus League win over the White Sox on Friday. He struck out one.
The right-hander fell just short of his five-inning goal, yet he did actually reach the 75-pitch threshold. The majority of his troubles came over the first two frames, but Daniel Kramer of MLB.com reports Gonzales was able to finish on a positive note with a scoreless effort when he came back out for the third inning.
