White Sox's Gio Gonzalez: Ready to go
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gonzalez, who dealt with shoulder discomfort during spring training, is fully healthy and ready to pitch when baseball resumes, Scot Gregor of the Daily Herald reports.

When training camp halted, Gonzalez was a projected member of the starting rotation, on the verge of making his spring debut, and expected to be ready for Opening Day, originally scheduled for March 26. The left-hander should be ready to take the mound when/if baseball kicks off an abbreviated season; however, the pause has allowed a couple of injured pitchers returning from Tommy John elbow surgery -- Carlos Rodon and Michael Kopech -- to advance further in their timelines without missing any game action. The White Sox may reassess the rotation with Rodon and/or Kopech ready to pitch.

White Sox's Gio Gonzalez: Debut rained out
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gonzalez was scheduled to pitch Wednesday before the game was rained out, Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

Gonzalez has been slowed by a shoulder injury this spring, but the White Sox never believed the injury would prevent the left-hander from taking his first turn through the rotation. Following the cancellation of Wednesday's game, Gonzalez got his work in under cover. He'll get at least two more starting opportunities in Cactus League play before camp breaks. He also has time beyond that for a back-field game with the minor leaguers if the White Sox need to build his pitch count leading up to an expected regular-season debut April 1 in Cleveland.

White Sox's Gio Gonzalez: Will be ready when camp breaks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gonzalez (shoulder) is scheduled for a bullpen session Sunday and then will be slotted in to pitch Wednesday, Scott Merkin of MLB.com reports.

The report isn't specific as to where Gonzalez will pitch Wednesday, but the implication is that it could be in a Cactus League game or in a "B" game on a back field. White Sox manager Rick Renteria said he's confident Gonzalez, who got up and down a couple of times during a 30-pitch simulated game Friday, will be ready to roll for the regular season. "Yeah, unless somebody knows something different than myself," Renteria said. "He'll be able to do it. We have the activities set up for him to be able to get himself ready and geared up to go." As the team's projected No. 5 starter, Gonzalez would not be needed until April 1 in Cleveland.

White Sox's Gio Gonzalez: More throwing scheduled
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gonzalez (shoulder) will play long toss Tuesday then throw bullpen sessions Wednesday and Friday, Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

Gonzalez has thrown consistently over the last week, reporting no setbacks, but the White Sox have not yet scheduled his first spring start. They remain confident that he'll be ready for the start of the regular season.

White Sox's Gio Gonzalez: More bullpens scheduled
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gonzalez (shoulder) will throw a bullpen session Saturday and another Monday, Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

Gonzalez dealt with some shoulder discomfort over the offseason and has been slightly delayed to start camp, though he's thrown plenty of times with no reported setbacks. It appears that he'll have time to be ready for Opening Day if things keep going according to plan.

White Sox's Gio Gonzalez: Tosses bullpen Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Contrary to an earlier report, Gonzalez (shoulder) threw a 20-pitch bullpen session Thursday, Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

This is an encouraging development for Gonzalez, who had been limited to long-toss work prior to Thursday's mound session. The southpaw is aiming to regain strength in his left shoulder before making his spring debut, though he suggested earlier in the week that he still expects to be ready to go for Opening Day.

White Sox's Gio Gonzalez: Not yet ready for mound work
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gonzalez (shoulder) has yet to receive clearance to throw off a mound and was limited to long-toss work Thursday, Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

Gonzalez indicated that he's still aiming to regain strength in his left shoulder before advancing to the next phase of his rehab. The southpaw suggested earlier in the week that he still expects to be ready to go for Opening Day, but any further setbacks or delays he experiences in the recovery process would put him at more risk of beginning the season on the 15-day injured list.

White Sox's Gio Gonzalez: Mixes in curve, changeup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gonzalez (shoulder) threw off flat ground Sunday in preparation for his first bullpen session Thursday, Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

Gonzalez spun a few curveballs and let go of some changeups during the session. ''All in all, it's big-time progress to where I started to where I am now,'' said Gonzalez, 34, who has been working to get his slightly sore left shoulder ready for the season. ''There's nothing going to keep me from being ready for Opening Day. I've just got to keep working hard.'' Gonzalez figures to slot in at the back end of the rotation once he's ready to go.

White Sox's Gio Gonzalez: Bullpen set for Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gonzalez (shoulder) played long toss Sunday and has a bullpen session scheduled for Thursday, Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

Gonzalez had shoulder discomfort crop up when pitchers and catchers reported earlier in February, but it's never appeared to be an issue that would jeopardize his availability for Opening Day. The veteran left-hander could progress to live batting practice if the bullpen session goes well.

White Sox's Gio Gonzalez: Plays catch Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gonzalez (shoulder) played catch Friday, Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

Gonzalez experienced shoulder discomfort during his offseason throwing program and is being held back early in training camp. "We're in no hurry at this point, you know?" manager Rick Renteria said. "So we'll take our time." Despite the issue, the White Sox anticipate Gonzalez being ready for Opening Day.

White Sox's Gio Gonzalez: Dealing with shoulder discomfort
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gonzalez is dealing with left shoulder discomfort but should be ready for Opening Day, James Fegan of The Athletic reports.

The shoulder problem doesn't appear to be a major worry, but it's never a positive to see a pitcher dealing with arm troubles right at the start of camp. Still, Gonzalez should open the year in the starting rotation, barring setbacks.

White Sox's Gio Gonzalez: Agrees to deal with White Sox
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gonzalez signed a contract with the White Sox on Thursday, Jon Heyman of MLB Network reports.

Gonzalez dealt with arm and shoulder injuries in 2019, but he still managed to record a 3.50 ERA with a 1.29 WHIP over 19 appearances (17 starts) with the Brewers. The southpaw could serve either as a back-end starter or bullpen piece for the White Sox as he looks to bounce back from an injury-plagued campaign.

Brewers' Gio Gonzalez: Won't play in NL Wild Card Game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gonzalez is not on the roster for Tuesday's National League Wild Card Game.

Gonzalez threw 4.2 innings Saturday and won't be called upon on just two days' rest. If the Brewers defeat the Nationals on Tuesday, he'll likely factor into the team's NLDS plans.

Brewers' Gio Gonzalez: Unlikely to be available Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gonzalez isn't expected to be available to pitch in Tuesday's game against the Nationals, Sam Fortier of The Washington Post reports.

Gonzalez fired 72 pitches in Sunday's regular-season finale, so he'll need at least a few more days before he's ready to take the mound again. The Brewers figure to use him as a reliever during the postseason, though they'll have to get past Tuesday first.

Brewers' Gio Gonzalez: Keeps Rockies off scoreboard
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gonzalez allowed four hits and two runs while striking out five over 4.2 scoreless frames in a no-decision versus the Rockies on Saturday.

Gonzalez has recently served as a primary reliever, but he did well as a traditional starter in this contest, throwing 40 of his 72 pitches for strikes. The 34-year-old has seen mostly limited innings in his appearances, posting a 3.50 ERA and 1.29 WHIP in 87.1 innings this season. He produced a 78:37 K:BB and 3-2 record as well.

Brewers' Gio Gonzalez: Rejoining rotation Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gonzalez is scheduled to start Saturday at Colorado, Sophia Minnaert of FOX Sports Wisconsin reports.

Gonzalez worked as a primary pitcher behind Brandon Woodruff in his last two outings, but he'll serve as a traditional starter for his final appearance of the regular season Saturday. The 34-year-old has pitched well in limited innings during September, posting a 1.47 ERA, 1.04 WHIP and 15:7 K:BB in five outings (18.1 frames).

Brewers' Gio Gonzalez: First win since May
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gonzalez tossed 3.1 scoreless innings of relief and picked up his third win of the season in Sunday's victory over the Pirates.

Gonzalez worked as a primary pitcher a second straight time through the rotation, and that ultimately resulted in him picking up his first win since May 15. While Gonzalez has not helped fantasy players in the win department the last few months, he has done decent work in the ratio categories, posting a 3.70 ERA and 1.29 WHIP across 82.2 innings this season.

Brewers' Gio Gonzalez: Another piggyback assignment on tap
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gonzalez is slated to piggyback starter Brandon Woodruff in Sunday's series finale with the Pirates.

Gonzalez moved to the bullpen Tuesday to accommodate Woodruff's return from the injured list, but the veteran southpaw still ended up pitching the most innings for the Brewers in their 3-1 win over the Padres that day. With Woodruff limited to two innings (37 pitches) following a two-month absence, Gonzalez followed him with three scoreless frames (53 pitches). The Brewers have indicated that Woodruff will add around 15-to-20 pitches to his count in his final two turns through the rotation during the regular season, so expect the division of labor between him and Gonzalez to be more even during Sunday's contest.

Brewers' Gio Gonzalez: Excels in piggyback role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gonzalez scattered two hits and a walk over three scoreless innings in relief and struck out four Tuesday in the Brewers' 3-1 win over the Padres.

Brandon Woodruff's return from the injured list resulted in Gonzalez losing his starting role, but the lefty ended up handling the larger workload of the two while manager Craig Counsell deployed the duo as a piggyback tandem. The piggyback arrangement won't necessarily be in place when Woodruff's next turn comes up, but Gonzalez should have ample opportunity to eat innings behind any of the team's rotation members. No Brewers pitcher has covered more than 6.1 innings in any game since Jordan Lyles tossed seven frames Aug. 11.

September 16, 2019 06:12 PM
Brewers' Gio Gonzalez: Shifts to piggyback role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gonzalez will follow Brandon Woodruff (oblique) on Tuesday against the Padres, Todd Rosiak of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

Woodruff is ready to return from an oblique injury, though he hasn't yet built up to a full starter's workload. He'll bump Gonzalez from the rotation, but the veteran should still be expecting to throw multiple innings Tuesday. It's unclear if he'll be shifted to a typical bullpen role following Tuesday's contest.
