Miguel Gonzalez (shoulder) doesn't believe he'll be ready to return from the disabled list when he's first eligible.

Gonzalez hit the disabled list with right shoulder inflammation last week and will be eligible to return for the two-game series against the Cardinals at the start of May, but he feels he's going to need a little more time. There should be a better idea of an exact timetable after he resumes throwing.
Apr 24 - 4:07 PM

White Sox placed RHP Miguel Gonzalez on the 10-day disabled list, retroactive to April 19, with right shoulder inflammation.

The White Sox are calling up Chris Beck from Triple-Charlotte to take Gonzalez's place on the 25-man roster. The 33-year-old right-hander was rocked in his last start against the A's on Tuesday for eight runs in three innings, and he's given up a whopping 24 hits in his 12 1/3 innings to begin 2018. He'll miss at least a start, with a good chance of it being more as shoulder injuries rarely are short-term.
Apr 23 - 12:52 PM

Miguel Gonzalez was tagged for eight earned runs, eight hits and two walks with a strikeouts over just three innings in a loss in Oakland on Tuesday.

The Mexican right-hander has gone from bad to awful, as he has allowed at least four earned runs in each of his outings. If you want to say anything positive, he has at least been consistent. Gonzalez has yielded exactly two walks and eight hits in all three of his starts. That's not a good thing. He also has just five strikeouts total over 12 1/3 innings. That's even worse. Unfortunately for the White Sox, they do not have much organizational depth or Gonzalez would likely be designated for assignment after this trash outing.
Apr 18 - 2:29 AM

Miguel Gonzalez allowed four runs over 4 1/3 innings of work in Monday's loss to the Rays.

It wasn't pretty, as Gonzalez was touched up by the struggling Rays for eight hits -- including a home run -- and a pair of walks. He needed 93 pitches to slog through his 4 1/3 frames and didn't record a single strikeout. Gonzalez has posted two straight clunkers to start the season and has a tough matchup this weekend in Minnesota.
Apr 9 - 7:02 PM

Miguel Gonzalez surrendered six runs -- five earned -- in five innings Tuesday in a loss to the Blue Jays.

He gave up two homers. Gonzalez might be an adequate starter for the White Sox, but he's past the point at which he's much of a threat to amass fantasy value.
Apr 3 - 10:54 PM

Miguel Gonzalez surrendered four hits and one run over 5 1/3 innings Thursday in the White Sox’s Cactus League win over the Diamondbacks.

Not a bad day at the office for the right-hander, who notched five strikeouts to go with two walks. Gonzalez held Arizona scoreless through his first five innings but ran out of gas in the sixth, allowing a leadoff double to A.J. Pollock before handing out a one-out walk to Yasmany Tomas. He was replaced by Xavier Cedeno, who promptly yielded an RBI single to Daniel Descalso. Thursday’s gem lowered Gonzalez’s spring ERA from 7.88 to 5.40.
Mar 23 - 12:48 AM

Miguel Gonzalez imploded Wednesday in the White Sox’s Cactus League win over the Reds, allowing four hits, two walks and five runs in just 2/3 of an inning.

Well, sometimes you eat the bear and sometimes the bear eats you. On Wednesday, the bear ate Gonzalez as the right-hander couldn’t get out of the first inning. Six of the eight batters he faced reach base including Phillip Ervin, who ended his outing by smashing a two-run triple to right field. The right-hander now owns an unsightly 16.88 ERA over two outings this spring. He’s only an option in AL-only leagues and even that might be a stretch.
Mar 7 - 7:04 PM

White Sox signed RHP Miguel Gonzalez to a one-year, $4.75 million contract.

Gonzalez was dreadful down the stretch last year with the Rangers, but he posted a decent 4.02 ERA in 268 2/3 innings with the White Sox between parts of the 2016 and 2017 seasons. The 33-year-old righty should have a spot in Chicago's Opening Day rotation in 2018, though that could become a carousel over the course of the season as the White Sox work in some of their younger starters.
Jan 11 - 12:23 PM

Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports that the White Sox have signed right-hander Miguel Gonzalez to a one-year contract.

SB Nation's Chris Cotillo says the deal is worth $4.75 million. Gonzalez began the 2017 season with the White Sox before getting traded to the Rangers at the August 31 waiver deadline. He struggled badly in Texas and ultimately finished the year with an underwhelming 4.62 ERA, 1.42 WHIP, and 100/55 K/BB ratio in 156 total innings. The veteran right-hander can work as a stopgap for Chicago's rotation in 2018 while the club's younger starters continue to work out the kinks.
Jan 11 - 11:47 AM

According to Eduardo A. Encina of the Baltimore Sun, the Orioles are interested in a reunion with Miguel Gonzalez.

Baltimore is absolutely desperate for starting pitching help this offseason after the rotation posted a league-worst 5.70 combined ERA in 2017. Encina says the O's are "one of at least three teams" that have shown interest in Gonzalez, who registered a 4.62 ERA, 1.42 WHIP, and 100/55 K/BB ratio in 156 innings (27 starts) this past season between the White Sox and Rangers. The veteran right-hander spent the first four years of his career with the Orioles.

Miguel Gonzalez allowed three runs over six innings in a loss to the Athletics on Thursday.

Gonzalez struck out five while allowing five hits and a walk, securing his second consecutive quality start to close the season. It was one that included a number of highs and lows after the 33-year-old was cut by the Orioles in spring, then caught on and pitched well enough with the White Sox that the Rangers dealt for him at the waiver trade deadline. In total, Gonzalez went 8-13 with a 4.62 ERA and 1.42 WHIP in 27 starts. He likely did enough to score a shot at winning a rotation spot with a club next spring as well.

Miguel Gonzalez allowed one earned run, four hits and no walks with five strikeouts over six innings in a loss in Oakland on Saturday.

Gonzalez was on the short end of a 1-0 score, with his only mistake a solo home run to power hitter Khris Davis. After a seven-run nightmare on Sept. 12 against the Mariners he has settled down to allow two runs over his past 11 innings. His final assignment of the season is set for Thursday in a rematch against the A's.

Miguel Gonzalez pitched well in Sunday's win over the Angels, allowing just one run on two hits over his five frames.

Gonzalez didn't have pinpoint command in this one though, issuing five free passes while striking out two. The only blemish on his afternoon was a Mike Trout sacrifice fly in the fifth inning. He'll look to further improve upon his 4.75 ERA and 1.47 WHIP when he does battle against the Athletics in Oakland on Saturday.
Sun, Sep 17, 2017 07:09:00 PM

Miguel Gonzalez struggled again Tuesday, surrendering seven runs in 2 1/3 innings against the Mariners.

Gonzalez was pitching great for the White Sox, but he's allowed 11 runs in 5 1/3 innings through his first two starts for the Rangers. He's given up four homers in those games, which one more than he had allowed in his first nine starts of the second half. Next up for him is a start Sunday versus the Angels.
