Mariners' Marco Gonzales: Earns second win of season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Mariners' Marco Gonzales: Strong in second start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Mariners' Marco Gonzales: Takes loss on Opening Day
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Mariners' Marco Gonzales: Impressive in final tune-up
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Mariners' Marco Gonzales: Misses bats in intrasquad start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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."

Mariners' Marco Gonzales: Gets Opening Day nod
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Mariners' Marco Gonzales: Gets mound work in
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Mariners' Marco Gonzales: Keeping arm in shape
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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."

Mariners' Marco Gonzales: Solid in spring start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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."

Mariners' Marco Gonzales: Heavy workload in intersquad game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Mariners' Marco Gonzales: Scratched from Friday's outing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Mariners' Marco Gonzales: Bounces back in second start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Mariners' Marco Gonzales: Hit hard in spring debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gonzales started Monday's Cactus League's loss to the Cubs and allowed five earned runs on three hits and two walks over two-thirds of an inning. He struck out one.

The young southpaw's spring could hardly have gotten off to a more unfavorable start, as Gonzales got himself in trouble early with a leadoff walk to Kris Bryant and unraveled from that point. Despite the ugly final line, the 28-year-old, who's expected to serve as the ace of the staff once again after posting a 16-6 record last season, put a positive spin on the results after the game, Greg Johns of MLB.com reports. "You go out the first one and you just want to feel good and throw some strikes," Gonzales said. "My timing was a little off and I was frustrated a little bit by my execution. But for the first time out, I wanted to feel good and have the ball feel good coming out of my hand. The results are what they are at this time of year."

Mariners' Marco Gonzales: Signs four-year extension
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gonzales signed a four-year extension with the Mariners on Monday.

The deal contains a club option for a fifth season, giving Seattle control over the lefty through his age-32 season and buying out up to two years of his free agency. Gonzales will make $30 million over the first four years of the deal, Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports. The southpaw has emerged as the rebuilding Mariners' top starter over the last two seasons, posting ERAs of 4.00 and 3.99. His 18.7 percent career strikeout rate keeps his fantasy ceiling fairly low, however.

Mariners' Marco Gonzales: Takes loss despite quality start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gonzales (16-13) allowed one run on five hits and three walks while striking out four over seven innings in a loss to the A's on Saturday.

It was a quality start, and in fact an "ultra quality start," but Brett Anderson and company blanked the Mariners and thus Gonzales was stuck with the loss. The left-handed Gonzales ends the year with a 3.99 ERA, 1.31 WHIP and 147:56 K:BB in 203 innings. He looks like a lock to make his second straight Opening Day start for Seattle in 2020.

Mariners' Marco Gonzales: Pitches well in defeat
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gonzales (16-12) allowed two runs on three hits with four strikeouts and two walks over seven innings as he took the loss against the Orioles on Sunday.

Gonzales had a nice day on the mound despite getting hit with the loss. He allowed a run to score in the first inning off an RBI double by Renato Nunez but shut the Orioles down until he gave up a solo home run to Chris Davis in the seventh inning. For his not-so-perfect season, Gonzales has been the most consistent member of the Mariners' rotation. The left-hander has a 4.09 ERA and a 143:53 K:BB ratio through 196 innings. He is only 27 and should be a piece the Mariners want to keep moving forward. Gonzales will make his final start of the season Saturday at home against the Athletics.

Mariners' Marco Gonzales: Earns 16th victory
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gonzales (16-11) pitched seven shutout innings, allowing six hits with zero walks and four strikeouts to earn a victory against the Pirates on Tuesday.

This was arguably Gonzales' best start since April, as it was the first time he didn't yield a run or walk since April 25. Gonzales' numbers are about average across the board, but he's been involved in a lot of decisions, leading to 16 wins and 11 losses. He could finish Top 5 in the American League in wins despite owning an ERA above 4.00. Gonzales, who will pitch next at the Orioles on Sunday, has a 4.14 ERA, 1.34 WHIP and 139 strikeouts in 189 innings this season.

Mariners' Marco Gonzales: Strikes out seven in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gonzales (15-11) gave up two runs on five hits and two walks while striking out seven through seven innings to earn the win over the Reds on Wednesday.

Gonzales posted 15 swinging strikes as he delivered seven quality innings in the win. The 27-year-old now has nine starts with at least seven innings and allowing two runs or fewer. Gonzales has a 3-2 record with a 4.25 ERA and a 1.44 WHIP in his last seven starts. Gonzales is scheduled to make his next start Tuesday against the Pirates at PNC Park.

Mariners' Marco Gonzales: Walks five in no-decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gonzales did not factor into the decision against Houston on Thursday, pitching 5.1 innings and giving up five runs (four earned) on seven hits and five walks without registering a strikeout.

All things considered, Gonzales was fortunate to escape with only four earned runs charged against him. He allowed at least one baserunner in each inning before his departure and threw just 54 of 98 pitches for strikes, leading to a season-high five walks. He also failed to whiff any batters for the first time this season and induced only six swinging strikes. The 27-year-old was handed an early seven-run lead but gave nearly all of it back, departing in the sixth inning after serving up a pair of homers that narrowed Seattle's lead to two. Gonzales now holds a 4.37 ERA, 1.37 WHIP and 128:49 K:BB in 175 innings this season. He'll have a home matchup against Cincinnati on Wednesday in his next scheduled start.

Mariners' Marco Gonzales: Rattled by Rangers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gonzales (14-11) took the loss Friday, coughing up six runs (five earned) on seven hits and two walks over 5.2 innings while striking out two as the Mariners fell 6-3 to the Rangers.

Five of the seven hits off the southpaw went for extra bases, including a sixth-inning solo shot by Danny Santana, and Gonzales got tagged for runs in four of the six frames in which he worked. He'll carry a 4.30 ERA and 128:44 K:BB through 169.2 innings into his next start Thursday in Houston.
