Gonzalez allowed four runs on five hits and a walk while striking out four over five innings Friday against the Dodgers. He did not factor in the decision.
Gonzalez did not start this one off well. He gave up a leadoff double to Chris Taylor, and then with two outs, allowed two doubles, a walk and a single to plate three runs for the Dodgers. Justin Turner would later add a solo home run in the third inning, but the Rockies were able to mount a late comeback to save Gonzalez from the loss. The 29-year-old has been lit up by the Dodgers lately for 11 runs over his last nine innings against them. For the year, he owns a 6.06 ERA, 1.46 WHIP and a 53:24 K:BB over 90.2 innings. He projected for a road matchup against the Angels next week.
Gonzalez (3-6) allowed seven earned runs on nine hits and two walks while striking out two across four innings, taking the loss to the Dodgers on Friday.
Gonzalez had an unpleasant start to the latter half of the season after making the start Friday in place of Antonio Senzatela (COVID-19). The 29-year-old got beat up by the Dodgers, allowing five runs in the first inning capped off by a Chris Taylor three-run home run. He has allowed at least one home run in his last seven starts. On the season, he has a 5.99 ERA and a very low 5.2 K/9 over 85.2 innings.
Gonzalez will start Friday's game against the Dodgers, Thomas Harding of MLB.com reports.
Friday's probable starter Antonio Senzatela was scratched after being placed on the COVID-19 injured list. With Gonzalez's start getting moved up a day, the Rockies' pitching plans past Friday aren't clear.
Gonzalez (3-5) picked up the win Thursday after holding the Diamondbacks to three runs on six hits and a walk while striking out five across five innings.
Most of his damage came via a two-run homer off the bat of Josh VanMeter in the fifth inning. The long ball has victimized the right-hander as of late, as he's surrendered at least one homer across six straight starts, allowing 24 runs in that span. Gonzalez finishes the first half of the season with a 5.51 ERA and 1.41 WHIP.
Gonzalez didn't factor into the decision in Friday's 9-3 extra-inning loss to the Cardinals, allowing two runs on seven hits over seven innings. He struck out one without walking a batter.
After Yadier Molina took him deep in the second inning, Gonzalez shut down the St. Louis offense and was in line for his third win of the year before the Colorado bullpen fell apart in the ninth and 10th. The quality start was only his second of the season, and the right-hander has served up at least one homer in five straight starts and has a 1.53 HR/9 through 76.2 innings, fueling his 5.52 ERA.
Gonzalez (2-5) allowed one run on three hits and two walks while striking out four over five innings as he took the loss Sunday against the Brewers.
Gonzalez had his best start of the month after holding the Brewers to one run over five innings. He had previously allowed a combined 18 runs over his last three starts and was blown up for six runs against the Brewers on June 20, so it was nice to see him have a bounce-back performance. His lone blemish was allowing a solo home run to Keston Hiura in the third as his strong effort went to waste with the Rockies being shut out. Gonzalez owns a 5.81 ERA, 1.45 WHIP and 41:20 K:BB over 69.2 innings so far this season. He lines up for a favorable matchup against the Cardinals later in the week but is still a risky streaming option given the fact that the game is in Colorado and he owns a 6.81 ERA over 37 innings at Coors Field this year.
Gonzalez allowed six runs on eight hits and two walks over 5.1 innings in Sunday's loss to Milwaukee. He struck out four and did not factor in the decision.
The Brewers jumped on Gonzalez early, scoring four runs in the first two innings, including a two-run shot by Kolten Wong. He coughed up another run in the fourth and was charged with a sixth and final run after he was taken out in the sixth. The 29-year-old righty saw his ERA rise to 6.12 through 64.2 frames. Gonzalez has been tagged with 18 runs over his last three appearances.
Gonzalez didn't factor into the decision Tuesday against the Padres after giving up four runs on six hits and a walk while fanning two across six innings.
Gonzalez was making his second start following two weeks in a long-relief role, and while his numbers weren't eye-popping, he still limited one of the best offenses in the National League to "only" four runs while covering six frames, which is an upgrade compared to his previous outing. His presence in the rotation will depend heavily on whether Jon Gray (elbow) is able to return before the weekend, but if that's not the case, Gonzalez can tentatively be expected to take the ball during the Rockies' upcoming series against the Brewers at home. If Gray is able to return, Gonzalez will move back to the bullpen.
Gonzalez is slated to make another turn through the Colorado rotation Tuesday against the Padres at Coors Field.
After working in a long-relief role for about two weeks, Gonzalez slotted back into the rotation last week following Jon Gray's (elbow) placement on the injured list. Gonzalez failed to impress in his road outing against the Marlins, covering five frames in the start but giving up a season-high eight runs on 11 hits -- including three home runs -- and a walk while striking out six. Though Gray has resumed playing catch, he's likely a week or longer away from returning from the IL, so Gonzalez will pick up another start in spite of his rough showing in Miami. Gonzalez shouldn't be expected to deliver dramatically better results as he returns to hitter-friendly Coors Field for his ninth start of the campaign.
Gonzalez (2-4) gave up eight runs on 11 hits and a walk with six strikeouts in five innings, taking the loss versus Miami on Thursday.
Gonzalez was on the hook for a six-run second inning, and he also allowed another pair to score in the fifth. Despite Thursday's being a road start, he still allowed three home runs. The right-hander has a 5.74 ERA, 1.48 WHIP and 31:15 K:BB across 53.1 innings this season. Jon Gray (elbow) is out until mid-July, so Gonzalez could get a longer look in the rotation. He projects for a home start versus the Padres next week, which is an unappetizing matchup.
Gonzalez is scheduled to make his first start in place of Jon Gray (elbow) on Thursday in Miami.
Gonzalez opened the season as the Rockies' No. 5 starter before shifting to the bullpen in late May when Kyle Freeland was reinstated from the injured list. With Gray moving to the IL over the weekend, Gonzalez will move back into the rotation for at least one turn, and perhaps more to follow if Gray is sidelined beyond the minimum 10 days. Though Gonzalez will benefit from not having to pitch at hitter-friendly Coors Field in his return to the rotation, his anemic 12.3 percent strikeout rate significantly limits his fantasy appeal.
Gonzalez will return to the Rockies' rotation in place of Jon Gray (elbow), Nick Groke of The Athletic reports.
Exactly how long Gonzalez remains in a starting role depends on the severity of Gray's injury, which has yet to be determined. Seven of Gonzalez's 11 appearances this season have come as a starter, though he's been out of the rotation since mid-May. His 4.84 ERA on the season is respectable given his hitter-friendly home park, but his 12.3 percent strikeout rate gives him a very low fantasy ceiling even as a streaming option on the road.
Gonzalez (2-2) was charged with the loss Wednesday at San Diego after giving up two runs on four hits with six strikeouts and a walk across six innings.
The 29-year-old surrendered a pair of solo homers to Fernando Tatis and Jake Cronenworth (who hit an inside-the-park home run), but the right-hander otherwise blanked the Friars over six solid frames. Gonzalez has a 4.54 ERA over 41.2 innings this season, though he's allowed only two runs on eight hits in his past two starts, covering 13 innings.
Gonzalez (2-1) earned the win Thursday after holding the Reds scoreless across six innings. He allowed four hits and one walk while striking out one batter.
After getting tagged for 14 runs over his last three starts, Gonzalez finally turned things around, holding his opponent scoreless for just the second time this season. Prior to Thursday's game, Gonzalez had struggled with first batters of innings -- 16 of 30 had reached -- but this time around, none of his first batters were able to break through. Thanks to the successful outing, the 29-year-old picked up his first win since his first start of the year against the Dodgers on April 1. Gonzalez will look to remain in the win column during his next projected start, Wednesday at San Diego.
Gonzalez (1-1) took the loss Saturday at St. Louis after giving up seven runs on eight hits with one strikeout and one walk across four innings.
The 29-year-old was often pitching from behind in the count Saturday as he threw a first-pitch strike to only nine of 21 batters faced, and he was pulled during the fifth inning after serving up a two-run homer to Paul Goldschmidt. Gonzalez had a solid start to the season with a 3.60 ERA through his first 20 innings, but he's surrendered 11 runs on 13 hits over 8.2 frames in his past two outings.
Gonzalez allowed four earned runs on five hits and two walks while striking out two across 4.2 innings in the loss to the Diamondbacks on Sunday. He did not factor in the decision.
Gonzalez failed to get out of the fifth inning and allowed a two-run homer to Pavin Smith. The 29-year-old hasn't pitched more than five innings in an outing this year. He has a 4.38 ERA and 1.46 WHIP in 24.2 innings. His next scheduled start comes Saturday in St. Louis.
Gonzalez allowed three runs on seven hits and no walks while striking out four across five innings in Tuesday's win over the Giants. He did not factor into the decision.
Gonzalez was solid through three innings, as he allowed only one earned run in a shaky first inning. However, he ended his outing by surrendering three consecutive hits and only escaped the frame thanks to a runner being thrown out at the plate. The Rockies have made a point to limit Gonzalez's innings, as he has not thrown more than exactly five frames in a start this season -- even when he's been effective. He's now maintained a 3.60 ERA and 12:7 K:BB across 20 innings and is projected to make his next start Sunday at Arizona.
Gonzalez didn't factor into the decision in the first game of Saturday's doubleheader against the Mets, allowing one run on six hits and a walk over five innings while striking out three.
The right-hander pitched well, throwing 54 of 83 pitches for strikes, and Gonzalez left the game in line for his second win of the season before the bullpen coughed up three runs in the final two innings. With the Rockies having two off days next week, it's not clear when he might make his next start, and while Gonzalez does have a superficially sharp 3.00 ERA through 15 innings, his 8:7 K:BB is a lot shakier.
Gonzalez's scheduled start Friday against the Mets has been postponed due to inclement weather, Tim Healey of Newsday reports.
The game will be made up as part of a doubleheader Saturday. Gonzalez will presumably get the ball in one of those two contests, though the Rockies have yet to officially announce their plans.
Gonzalez gave up one run on four hits and three walk during Saturday's 4-3 loss to the Giants. He had one strikeout and didn't factor in the decision.
It wasn't an electric performance by any means, but the right-hander exited in line for the victory before the bullpen coughed up a three-run homer during the sixth inning. Gonzalez is in the rotation after working out of the bullpen for the first week of the season, and he lines up for another start next weekend against the Mets.
