Miguel Gonzalez struck out eight while allowing two runs over six innings in a loss to the Royals on Saturday.
Everything went Gonzalez' way except the final result. It doesn't deter from the fact that Saturday's was the best start of his four since being promoted in late April. The right-hander allowed six hits, including a Lorenzo Cain solo home run, without issuing a free pass. He owns a 4.57 ERA and 1.62 WHIP through four starts and remains winless. He'll seek that first victory against the same Royals on Thursday. May 21 - 5:20 PM

Miguel Gonzalez proved inefficient in a no-decision against the Yankees on Sunday, walking five and allowing three runs over 4 2/3 innings.

This was Gonzalez's third start of the season. He surrendered a sacrifice fly to Carlos Beltran in the first inning, but the fifth was truly when he tripped up. In the frame, the 31-year-old right-hander allowed an RBI infield single to Starlin Castro and issued a bases-loaded RBI walk to Dustin Ackley. Through 15 2/3 innings, Gonzalez has yielded nine runs on 19 hits. He has also walked 10 in that space. A home start against the Royals shows next on his schedule.
May 15 - 5:16 PM

Miguel Gonzalez held the Rangers to just one run over 5 2/3 innings in Monday's 8-4 extra-innings victory.

Gonzalez's second start with the White Sox went much better than his first one. He walked three on the night and allowed a solo homer to Rougned Odor in the sixth inning, but the righty yielded just three hits overall and struck out four. The veteran right-hander has surely earned more chances with this effort. He'll get the Yankees in the Bronx over the weekend.

White Sox recalled RHP Miguel Gonzalez from Triple-A Charlotte.

Gonzalez is back for his second start with the White Sox after a two-week stay in the minor leagues. He got lit up for 11 hits and five runs in 5 1/3 innings the last time Chicago tried him out against the Blue Jays. It's best to ignore him Monday versus Texas.
May 9 - 1:13 PM

Miguel Gonzalez will start for the White Sox on Monday in Texas.

Erik Johnson started Thursday but was optioned back to Triple-A Charlotte after the game. Gonzalez first outing with the Pale Hose didn't go well, as he allowed 11 hits and five runs over 5 1/3 innings. Still, he'll have a chance to stick around for a while with John Danks no longer in the picture.
May 6 - 5:40 PM

White Sox optioned RHP Miguel Gonzalez to Triple-A Charlotte.

Gonzalez got lit up for 11 hits and five runs over 5 1/3 innings in his White Sox debut Monday against the Blue Jays. It was a tough first assignment for the 31-year-old right-hander, who signed a minor league contract with Chicago on April 3 after getting cut by the Orioles at the end of spring training. He'll get another look eventually, whether it's with the White Sox or another club.
Apr 27 - 2:32 PM

White Sox manager Robin Ventura hasn't decided whether he'll keep Miguel Gonzalez in the starting rotation.

His White Sox debut on Monday wasn't very inspiring. Toronto bludgeoned the right-hander for 11 hits and five runs in 5 1/3 innings. Chris Sale, Jose Quintana, Carlos Rodon and Mat Latos aren't going anywhere, which means Gonzalez would have to beat out John Danks for the last rotation spot. Danks has gotten off to a rough start (0-3, 6.23 ERA) but looked a little better in his last outing against Tampa Bay (6 IP, 5 H, 2 ER).
Apr 26 - 10:08 AM

In his White Sox debut, Miguel Gonzalez gave up five runs over 5 1/3 innings against the Blue Jays on Monday.

Gonzalez was in trouble for most of the night, allowing 11 hits (including a two-run homer by Michael Saunders) and pair of walks. The veteran right-hander was asked to make a spot start Monday and this sort of performance might not lead to him sticking around for long.
Apr 25 - 11:27 PM

White Sox purchased the contract of RHP Miguel Gonzalez from Triple-A Charlotte.

Gonzalez will make a spot start for the White Sox on Monday night against the Blue Jays. The former Orioles starter had a 2.45 ERA in two appearances for Triple-A Charlotte, but Toronto's offense makes this a poor fantasy streaming situation. Gonzalez could become fantasy relevant down the road if he's allowed an extended stay in the majors.
Apr 25 - 12:41 PM

The White Sox will call up Miguel Gonzalez on Monday to start against the Blue Jays.

He's making a spot start as the White Sox look to give their rotation a little extra rest. Gonzalez has posted a 2.45 ERA over his first two starts with Triple-A Charlotte. The matchup versus the Blue Jays obviously isn't an ideal one.
Apr 24 - 3:23 PM

Miguel Gonzalez's minor league contract with the White Sox does not include an opt-out.

Gonzalez latched on with the White Sox over the weekend after the Orioles cut ties with him last week. He'll serve as rotation depth at Triple-A Charlotte.
Apr 4 - 8:55 PM

White Sox signed RHP Miguel Gonzalez to a minor league contract.

The 31-year-old right-hander was released by the Orioles last week after he failed to crack the Opening Day rotation. Given the uncertainty at the back end of the White Sox rotation, Gonzalez could quickly get an opportunity to pitch for the big league club if he starts off strong at Triple-A Charlotte. He registered a 4.91 ERA in 26 starts last season for Baltimore, but he had a 3.45 ERA (118 ERA+) in 435 2/3 innings between 2012-2014.
Apr 3 - 4:41 PM

Orioles manager Buck Showalter said Friday that the club would like to re-sign Miguel Gonzalez.

The O's released Gonzalez in a cost-cutting move, but they would like to have him back at a cheaper price. However, the 31-year-old will have options elsewhere and doesn't seem likely to remain in Baltimore. The White Sox, Marlins, A's, Blue Jays and Angels have reportedly expressed interest in Gonzalez.
Apr 1 - 4:12 PM

Mike DiGiovanna reports that the Angels "aren't among the more aggressive teams" in pursuit of Miguel Gonzalez.

The White Sox, Marlins, A's and Blue Jays are also in on Gonzalez after he was surprisingly released by the Orioles. He should sign on somewhere quickly.
Mar 31 - 6:25 PM

SB Nation's Chris Cotillo reports that the White Sox are "aggressively pursuing" Miguel Gonzalez.

Gonzalez was released by the Orioles on Wednesday evening and will pass through waivers on Friday, at which point he can sign with any team. Cotillo says the Marlins, A's, and Blue Jays have also been expressing interest. Gonzalez posted an ugly 4.91 ERA in 26 starts last season and he got roughed up this spring in the Grapefruit League, but the 31-year-old will represent a potential upgrade for many major league rotations.
