Gonzalez threw six innings in a no-decision against the Diamondbacks on Monday, giving up two earned runs on three hits over six innings, striking out two and walking one as the Rockies eventually fell 5-3.
Making his first start after getting called back up from Triple-A Albuquerque, Gonzalez put in a solid outing in posting his first quality start at the big-league level of 2019. He still sports rough numbers overall, as his ERA is a bloated 5.87 to go along with a 1.57 WHIP and an unimpressive 18:15 K:BB across 30.2 innings on the season.
Gonzalez is listed as the Rockies' starting pitcher for Monday's game against the Diamondbacks.
The Rockies recalled Gonzalez from Triple-A Albuquerque on Saturday to provide the club with another long-relief option in the final two games of its series with the Marlins, but he ultimately wasn't needed. The right-hander will now re-enter the rotation as the Rockies' fifth starter, taking the spot previously occupied by Jeff Hoffman, who has since been optioned to Albuquerque. Over six outings (five starts) with the big club this season, Gonzalez has posted a 6.57 ERA, 1.78 WHIP and 16:14 K:BB in 24.2 innings.
Gonzalez was recalled from Triple-A Albuquerque on Saturday.
The right-hander has worked almost exclusively as a starter at Triple-A and in the majors this season, but it looks like he will pitch in relief this time around, replacing Chad Bettis (hip) in the Rockies' bullpen. Gonzalez has struggled to a 6.57 ERA with Colorado this season after not pitching in the majors at all in 2017 or 2018.
Gonzalez was optioned to Triple-A Albuquerque on Tuesday, Jenny Cavnar of AT&T SportsNet Rocky Mountain reports.
The right-hander struggled over his past two outings, giving up seven runs on nine hits in five total innings. He'll try to turn things around in the minors, where he carries an ERA of 6.10 in 15 games at the Triple-A level this season. Jeff Hoffman was recalled from Triple-A Albuquerque in a corresponding move.
Gonzalez didn't factor into the decision in Saturday's 8-5 loss to the Padres, giving up five runs on eight hits and two walks over five innings while striking out three.
The right-hander wasn't sharp, tossing 53 of 85 pitches for strikes, and Gonzalez was headed for his fifth loss before the Rockies rallied to tie the game in the seventh inning. In fact, the right-hander hasn't won a big-league game since 2015. Gonzalez now has a 6.57 ERA and 16:14 K:BB through 24.2 innings, and he'll likely shift back to the bullpen after this outing.
Gonzalez is slated to start Saturday's game against the Padres.
After making his fourth start with the Rockies on July 27 in Cincinnati, Gonzalez shifted to the bullpen for the past two weeks with Colorado's schedule allowing the team to get by with a four-man rotation. Gonzalez only made one appearance in relief, giving up two runs while failing to record an out Aug. 6 in Houston. Though he'll be returning to a starting role on three days' rest, Gonzalez shouldn't face any workload restrictions after tossing only 13 pitches in that outing versus the Astros.
Gonzalez (0-3) allowed three runs on five hits with two walks and three strikeouts across 5.2 innings while taking a loss against the Reds on Saturday.
The right-hander allowed two homers, which accounted for all three of the Reds' runs. Gonzalez has given up four home runs in his last two starts combined. He is winless with a 5.03 ERA, 1.63 WHIP and 13 strikeouts in 19.2 innings this season. But more than likely, this will prove to be just a spot start for Gonzalez, who has spent most of the season at Triple-A.
Gonzalez was recalled from Triple-A Albuquerque ahead of his scheduled start Saturday against the Reds.
Gonzalez is slated to make a spot start for the Rockies, who are in need of a sixth starter following Wednesday's doubleheader. The right-hander has already made three starts for the big club this season, compiling a 5.14 ERA, 1.79 WHIP and 10:9 K:BB across 14 innings. Jeff Hoffman was sent to the minors in a corresponding move.
Gonzalez will likely be recalled from Triple-A Albuquerque to start Saturday's game against the Reds, Kyle Newman of The Denver Post reports.
Gonzalez delivered a decent outing during his last big-league start, surrendering two runs while fanning four over five innings of work. He's in line to make another spot start Saturday, as the Rockies will require a sixth starter following Wednesday's doubleheader.
Gonzalez (0-2) was hit with the loss after allowing two runs on five hits and three walks while striking out four over five innings in Game 2 of Monday's doubleheader against the Giants. He was optioned to Triple-A Albuquerque after the game, Patrick Saunders of The Denver Post reports.
Gonzalez was called up Monday to make a spot start, and he'll go right back down to the minors after his outing. He threw the ball well in the nightcap, surrendering just two runs in the fourth inning on a pair of solo homers, but he was removed from the contest after five frames with 91 pitches. Through three starts this season for the Rockies, the 27-year-old right-hander owns a 5.14 ERA and 1.79 WHIP with 10 punchouts across 14 innings.

Gonzalez allowed three runs on five hits and two walks while striking out two over four innings Sunday against the Dodgers. He didn't factor into the decision.
Gonzalez gave up one run in the third inning and two more in the top of the fifth before he was lifted. The 27-year-old earned a chance to toe the rubber Sunday following a solid performance Tuesday against the Giants (three runs allowed over five innings), but he was unable to work deep into the ballgame in the series finale, firing 86 pitches over four frames. It remains to be seen whether he'll stick in the rotation for another turn.
Manager Bud Black said Gonzalez will start Sunday against the Dodgers, Kyle Newman of The Denver Post reports.
It sounds like Gonzalez will get an extended look in Colorado's starting rotation after holding his own during his season debut against the Giants on Tuesday, allowing three runs on six hits and four walks while striking out four in five innings. In 14 career starts, the right-hander owns a 4.76 ERA, 1.52 WHIP and 39:41 K:BB in 75.2 innings,
Gonzalez (0-1) took the loss against the Giants on Tuesday, tossing five innings and giving up three runs on six hits and four walks while striking out four.
In his first major-league start since 2016, Gonzalez looked to be fully recovered from the Tommy John surgery that wiped out most of his 2017 and 2018 seasons. He began the night by striking out the side in order and threw 94 total pitches in five innings, allowing only one extra-base hit. Unfortunately, the control issues that dogged Gonzalez prior to his surgery reared their head again Tuesday; he issued four free passes in the start and has now walked 45 batters in 82.1 career major-league innings. If he sticks in the rotation, he will next take the mound for a home matchup against the Dodgers on Sunday.
Gonzalez had his contract selected from Triple-A Albuquerque by the Rockies on Tuesday.
Gonzalez will start Tuesday's game at San Francisco, which will be his first major-league appearance since 2016. The 27-year-old has a 5.66 ERA, 1.53 WHIP and 69:33 K:BB over 76.1 innings with the Isotopes this season. Gonzalez's status in the starting rotation beyond Tuesday is uncertain.
Gonzalez is scheduled to start Tuesday's game against the Giants, Kyle Newman of The Denver Post reports.
Jeff Hoffman was sent to the minors after struggling in his most recent start, opening up a spot in Colorado's starting rotation for Gonzalez, who will have his contract purchased from Triple-A Albuquerque ahead of his 2019 big-league debut Tuesday. The right-handed Gonzalez owns a 5.66 ERA, 1.53 WHIP and 69:33 K:BB in 76.1 innings (14 starts) with the Isotopes this season, so it would be unwise to expect much from the 27-year-old. It remains to be seen whether he'll stick in the rotation beyond Tuesday's outing, though that could depend on how he fares.
Gonzalez signed a minor-league contract with the Rockies on Tuesday, Evan Grant of The Dallas Morning News reports.
Gonzalez underwent Tommy John surgery in July 2017 and was able to pitch in the low-level minors in September. It appears the 26-year-old is healthy, as there was no indication of any setbacks, and should be ready come spring training. Gonzalez had a decent showing during 2015 in his rookie campaign with a 3.90 ERA and 1.21 WHIP over 67 innings, but hasn't pitched in the majors since July 2016.
Gonzalez (elbow) allowed four hits and a walk over five scoreless innings for short-season Spokane in Friday's series-clinching win as the Indians advanced to the Northwest League championship series against Eugene.

Gonzalez (elbow) is set to start for short-season Spokane on Sunday, Dave Nichols of the Spokesman-Review reports.
The right-hander, who's been rehabbing from last July'sTommy John surgery, will work in Spokane's playoff game during his latest rehab turn. Perhaps a useful effort there will allow Gonzalez to pitch in the majors this season, but the 25-year-old is likelier to fight for a roster spot in 2019 spring training as he remains under Texas' pre-arbitration control for one more season.
