Date:

Miguel Gonzalez allowed four runs in five innings, but received ample run support to grab a win on Thursday against the Red Sox.

The Orioles had staked Gonzalez to a 6-1 lead in the top of the fourth, but he gave three of the runs right back in the bottom half of the frame on a three-run home run to Alejandro De Aza. Gonzalez surrendered eight hits overall while walking none and striking out four. He was making his first start since June 9 due to a strained groin. He has a date with the Rangers at home next.

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

Gonzalez will return to the Orioles' starting rotation on Thursday afternoon at Fenway Park after missing a little over two weeks with a groin strain. The 31-year-old right-hander boasts a 3.33 ERA, 1.12 WHIP, and 59/24 K/BB ratio in 73 innings this season.

Miguel Gonzalez (groin) is expected to return to the Orioles' rotation Thursday against the Red Sox.

Gonzalez allowed two runs over five innings in his lone rehab start Saturday with Double-A Bowie. The right-hander missed a little over two weeks with a groin strain.

Miguel Gonzalez (groin) threw a bullpen session Thursday.

And with that, Gonzalez is officially cleared to make a minor league rehab start on Saturday with Double-A Bowie, where he'll throw around five innings or 75 pitches. If all goes well, he'll rejoin the Orioles when he's first eligible next Thursday. The right-hander has been out since June 10 with a groin strain.
Jun 18 - 4:12 PM

Miguel Gonzalez (groin) is scheduled to make a rehab start Saturday with Double-A Bowie.

That assumes that his bullpen session goes well Thursday in Philadelphia. He's on track to return to the Orioles' starting rotation late next week, but there are still some hurdles to cross. Gonzalez has been on the disabled list since June 11 with a groin strain.

Miguel Gonzalez (groin) is scheduled to throw a bullpen session Thursday in Philadelphia.

If it goes well, he could be cleared to return to the Orioles' starting rotation on June 25. Gonzalez has been on the disabled list since June 11 with a groin strain.
Jun 16 - 4:39 PM

Orioles placed RHP Miguel Gonzalez on the 15-day disabled list with a right groin strain.

Gonzalez suffered the injury Tuesday in his start against the Red Sox and will likely be out for three weeks. Mike Wright will take his spot in the Orioles' rotation.
Jun 11 - 3:09 PM

Miguel Gonzalez (groin) could be placed on the disabled list.

Gonzalez suffered a right groin strain during Tuesday's start, necessitating an early exit. He compared it to a groin injury that he suffered a couple years ago when he missed a start but avoided the disabled list. While it doesn't seem to be a serious ailment, the Orioles are already playing a man short while Brian Matusz serves a suspension, so they might be forced to make a move with Gonzalez. Mike Wright would be the most likely candidate to step into his rotation spot on Sunday versus the Yankees.
Jun 10 - 9:03 AM

Miguel Gonzalez shut the Red Sox out over 4 1/3 innings before departing with a right groin strain, taking a no-decision in Tuesday's win.

Gonzalez scattered four hits and a pair of walks while striking out one batter. The right-hander will be evaluated on Wednesday to determine the severity of the injury. If Gonzalez can't make his next start at home against the Yankees, Mike Wright would likely get the call. Gonzalez has a 3.33 ERA with a 1.12 WHIP and a 59/24 K/BB ratio over 73 innings.
Jun 9 - 10:45 PM

Miguel Gonzalez had to exit Tuesday's start versus the Red Sox with a right groin strain.

It's not clear at this point how severe the strain is. If Gonzalez needs a disabled list stint, Mike Wright would be an obvious candidate to assume his spot in the Orioles' rotation.
Jun 9 - 9:09 PM

Miguel Gonzalez exited Tuesday's start versus the Red Sox with an undisclosed injury.

Gonzalez was visited on the mound after inducing a groundout from Dustin Pedroia in the top of the fifth inning and eventually walked off the field with the trainer and Orioles manager Buck Showalter. He didn't suffer an obvious injury, so we'll have to see what the club says.
Jun 9 - 8:50 PM

Miguel Gonzalez allowed three solo home runs in 6 2/3 innings en route to a loss as the Orioles lost on Wednesday to the Astros, 3-1.

Chris Carter accounted for two of the homers with George Springer hitting the third. They accounted for three of the four hits Gonzalez allowed on the evening. He walked none and struck out eight in an otherwise solid effort. The right-hander has pitched well for the Orioles in 11 starts this season, carrying a 3.54 ERA with a 1.11 WHIP and a 58/22 K/BB ratio over 68 2/3 innings. Gonzalez will toe the rubber at home against the Red Sox in his next start.
Jun 3 - 10:34 PM

Miguel Gonzalez pitched well in a no-decision against the Rays on Friday, allowing just one run on three hits over eight strong innings.

The veteran right-hander racked up six strikeouts on the night without issuing a walk. The only blemish on his evening was a solo homer off the bat of Steven Souza in the second inning. While he doesn't rack up elite strikeout numbers, Gonzalez owns a solid 3.48 ERA over 62 innings on the season. He'll look to get back in the win column when he takes on the Astros in Houston on Wednesday.
May 29 - 10:27 PM

Miguel Gonzalez struggled mightily against the Marlins on Sunday, surrendering five runs on ten hits in just four innings pitched.

Saturday's match-up between these two teams didn't see a run until the Marlins won on a single in the bottom of the 13th inning. The Marlins decided not to wait around against Gonzalez on Sunday, battering him for 10 hits in just five innings and scoring solitary runs in the second, third and fifth innings, plus two in the fourth. Gonzalez struck out two and walked three in the unimpressive start and now holds a 5-3 record, 3.83 ERA, 1.28 WHIP and 44/22 K/BB ratio in 54 innings. A home date with the Rays awaits next time he takes to the mound.
