Gonzales allowed three runs (zero earned) on four hits while walking one and striking out eight across 4.2 innings Thursday against the Astros. He did not factor in the decision.
Gonzales was pulled after just 79 pitches but the end result was still his most promising start of the season. As usual, he was in the strike zone frequently with 52 of his 79 pitches resulting in a strike. However, he wasn't especially deceptive -- he generated only eight swinging strikes -- and benefited greatly from the Astros fouling off 20 of his offerings. Gonzales has some name recognition due to his prospect pedigree, but he hasn't shown the ability to pitch deep into games or limit runs on a consistent basis.
Gonzales allowed four earned runs on five hits while walking one and striking out five across 3.1 innings Saturday against the Athletics. He did not factor into the decision.
Gonzales managed to keep the ball in the yard and his team in the game, and he did have a nice K:BB ratio. The positives end there, however, as Gonzales had his second consecutive disastrous start in which he has combined to allow eight earned runs across just 5.2 innings. Despite once being a promising prospect, he has yet to deliver results at the major-league level and there's no reason to trust him at this time.
Gonzales (1-1) allowed four runs on eight hits and one walk while earning the loss Monday against the Royals. He struck out four.
Gonzales allowed an early parade of baserunners, yielding three runs in the first inning while running up his pitch count. He moved through the second inning quickly before allowing the first two men to reach in the third -- one of whom came around to score after his removal with one out. Gonzales contributed a quality start in his previous outing against the Giants, but this performance gives him an inflated 7.27 ERA and 1.73 WHIP through nine innings this season. He'll look to bounce back this weekend against the Athletics.
The postponement Sunday of the Mariners' series finale in Minnesota robbed Gonzales of a two-start week, but he'll at least benefit from trading a matchup with a tough Twins squad for one with a Royals team that had scored just 15 runs in its first six games. Gonzales was steady in his first outing of the season April 3 against the Giants, covering 6.1 innings and conceding three runs on six hits and no walks.
Gonzales won't start Sunday against the Twins after the game was postponed due to inclement weather.
The two sides will make up the contest May 14, which had been an off day for both teams. The Mariners have yet to announce how the postponement will affect their rotation plans, as the team could opt simply push Gonzales back a day in the schedule to start the series opener Monday in Kansas City or skip the lefty's turn through the rotation entirely.
