Miguel Gonzalez allowed one run on eight hits over six innings but took a no-decision against the Mariners on Sunday.
Gonzalez had runners on base in every inning but the fifth, but he managed to hold the Mariners off the scoreboard for most of the afternoon. The right-hander has turned in four straight strong starts this month, allowing no more than two runs in any of his four turns, but he's got just one win over that span to show for it. He'll take a 5-5 record and 3.77 ERA into a rematch with the Mariners on Saturday. Jul 27 - 8:36 PM

Miguel Gonzalez allowed just three hits and two runs in seven and two-thirds innings against the Angels on Tuesday.

While Gonzalez did walk four, he was able to keep the Angels off the board until the eighth inning, when Mike Trout launched a two-run homer. Gonzalez has made a habit of going deep into games as of late. He'd gone eight innings in each of his last two starts. This effort dropped his ERA to 3.91. If he's able to continue this recent trend, he's somebody to keep an eye on in deep AL-only leagues. Next time out he'll face the Mariners.

Orioles recalled RHP Miguel Gonzalez from Triple-A Norfolk.

Gonzalez will start on Tuesday against the Angels after being optioned prior to the All-Star break so that he could continue pitching. He has a 4.04 ERA and 1.45 WHIP on the season and isn't a good streaming option Tuesday.
Jul 22 - 8:06 PM

Miguel Gonzalez will return to the Orioles' starting rotation on Tuesday against the Angels.

Gonzalez was optioned to Triple-A Norfolk before the All-Star break so that he could get in work during the long layoff. He has a 4.04 ERA and 1.45 WHIP on the season and isn't a good fantasy play against the Halos.
Jul 21 - 3:29 PM

Orioles optioned RHP Miguel Gonzalez to Triple-A Norfolk.

Gonzalez had an option remaining, and will make a start in the minor leagues over the All-Star break so that he doesn't have an extra-long layoff. Through the season's first half he sports a 4.04 ERA, 1.45 WHIP and 69/32 K/BB ratio over 89 innings.
Jul 12 - 1:22 PM

Miguel Gonzalez delivered a strong performance in Friday's no-decision against the Yankees, surrendering just two runs on six hits over eight frames.

Gonzalez racked up five strikeouts on the night without issuing a walk. The only damage against him came on a pair of solo home runs off the bats of Brian Roberts and Kelly Johnson. He finishes the first half of the season with a 4-5 record, 4.04 ERA, 1.45 WHIP and 69/32 K/BB ratio over 89 innings. While he's capable of turning in strong starts on occasion, he's best served as a matchup play only in mixed leagues.
Jul 11 - 10:23 PM

Miguel Gonzalez delivered one of his finest outings of the season in a no-decision against the Red Sox on Saturday, allowing just two runs (one earned) on seven hits over eight innings.

Both of the Red Sox runs came in the second inning, where Stephen Drew hit a solo homer, and a run came home on an error charged to Steven Pearce. He’ll once again go in search of his fifth victory of the season when he carries a 4.22 ERA and troublesome 1.52 WHIP into Thursday’s contest against the Nationals.
Jul 5 - 3:52 PM

Miguel Gonzalez got a no-decision, allowing three runs over 4 2/3 innings in Sunday's loss to the Rays.

The right-hander failed to make it out of the fifth inning for the first time since May 4. Overall, Gonzalez allowed eight hits -- including home runs to Ben Zobrist and Matt Joyce -- while walking four and striking out two. He now carries a 4.56 ERA, a 1.56 WHIP, and a 58/30 K/BB ratio. Gonzalez will match up against the Red Sox on the road in his next start.
Jun 29 - 5:42 PM

Miguel Gonzalez took his fifth loss, allowing three runs over five innings as the Orioles were defeated by the White Sox on Tuesday.

All things considered, the start could have gone worse. Gonzalez allowed nine hits and walked three while striking out only one batter. He surrendered a first-inning home run to Gordon Beckham as well. The right-hander carries a mediocre 4.48 ERA with a 1.49 WHIP and a 56/26 K/BB ratio in 68 1/3 innings. He'll try to turn things around in his next start at home against the Rangers.
Jun 24 - 10:49 PM

Miguel Gonzalez fought his way through five innings to earn the win Tuesday, allowing four runs on eight hits against the Rays.

In his first start since returning from an oblique injury, Gonzalez struggled but was able to hold on long enough to earn his fourth win. The right-hander gave up four extra-base hits, including two solo home runs, among his eight hits allowed. He also walked two while striking out five, needing 95 pitches to get through five innings. It was the first time Gonzalez has allowed more than three earned runs since his first start of the season. With the rust off, Gonzalez should be sharper against the White Sox on Monday.
Jun 17 - 11:50 PM

Orioles activated RHP Miguel Gonzalez from the 15-day disabled list.

Gonzalez will return to the Orioles' starting rotation on Tuesday night against the Rays after missing a little over two weeks with an oblique strain. The right-hander has a 4.17 ERA in 58 1/3 innings this season.
Jun 17 - 4:56 PM

Miguel Gonzalez (oblique) is expected to rejoin the Orioles' rotation on Tuesday against the Rays.

Gonzalez could pitch in relief before then if he's needed, but the hope is that the O's can hold him back for Tuesday's start. The right-hander boasts a 2.93 ERA over his last 27 2/3 innings but could eventually be bumped from the rotation in favor of Kevin Gausman.
Jun 15 - 9:43 AM

Miguel Gonzalez (oblique) tossed 4 1/3 scoreless innings in a rehab start Wednesday at Double-A Bowie.

Jun 11 - 8:08 PM

Miguel Gonzalez (oblique) is scheduled to make a rehab start Wednesday night with Double-A Bowie.

Jun 11 - 4:22 PM

Miguel Gonzalez (oblique) is aiming to make a rehab start this week with Double-A Bowie.
