Twins' Stephen Gonsalves: Slated for primary pitching duties Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gonsalves is expected to serve as the Twins' primary pitcher in Thursday's game against the Tigers, Rhett Bollinger of MLB.com reports.

Gabriel Moya will serve as the Twins' opening pitcher, likely working no more than two innings before giving way to Gonsalves, who will be making what's expected to be his final appearance of 2018. After serving up 19 runs (16 earned) in 12.1 innings while being deployed as a traditional starter in his first four big-league appearances, Gonsalves seems to have found his footing as a primary pitcher out of the bullpen. In his two relief outings, Gonsalves has given up just one unearned run on one hit and five walks over nine innings while striking out eight.

Twins' Stephen Gonsalves: Set for primary pitcher role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gonsalves is expected to serve as the Twins' primary pitcher Wednesday against the Tigers, Mike Berardino of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

Gonsalves made his first four appearances with the Twins as a starter, posting a miserable 11.68 ERA and 3.00 WHIP across 12.1 innings. In light of those struggles, the Twins opted to experiment with him out of the bullpen as a primary pitcher during his most recent turn in the rotation Sept. 13 against the Royals, with Gonsalves responding by tossing three no-hit innings. He'll work out of the bullpen behind opener Gabriel Moya again Wednesday and attempt to replicate the success he enjoyed his last time out.

Twins' Stephen Gonsalves: No-decision in short start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gonsalves allowed five runs on five hits in 2.1 innings Friday against the Royals, recording one strikeout and three walks in a no-decision.

Gonsalves got knocked around in the third inning, giving up three runs and getting the hook with one out and two runners on only to have those runners score on a Salvador Perez home run. In four starts Gonsalves has only once gone five innings and has given up 16 earned runs and 13 walks in 12.1 innings while striking out just six. He's now carrying a .414 batting average against and is slated to take on the Yankees at home in his next start.

Twins' Stephen Gonsalves: Allows four runs in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gonsalves (0-2) took the loss Saturday against the A's, allowing four runs on seven hits and four walks across five innings. He struck out two.

Jonathan Lucroy got the best of him in this one, knocking an RBI single in the second inning before depositing a three-run homer in the fourth frame. Gonsalves has now allowed four runs in each of his first two major-league appearances, leaving him with an unsightly 11.37 ERA through just 6.1 big-league innings. He's also compiled an ugly 5:6 K:BB across those starts, highlighting the command issues that have plagued him all year (65 walks in 120.2 minor-league frames). It's unclear if the rookie will get another turn through the rotation at this point, but if he does, Gonsalves would line up to face the Rangers on the road.

Twins' Stephen Gonsalves: To get another turn
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gonsalves, who gave up four runs on six hits and two walks while striking out three in 1.1 innings Monday against the White Sox, will get at least one more turn in the rotation, Mike Berardino of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

The game was delayed due to rain, and Gonsalves warmed up before the delay, so his routine for his big-league debut was a little off. That said, as a 24-year-old righty without high-end stuff and with significant command/control issues in the minors this year (65 walks in 120.2 innings), Gonsalves will make for a very risky option, even when his pregame routine goes off without a hitch. His next start figures to come Saturday against the A's.
