Miguel Gonzalez imploded Saturday in a loss to the Blue Jays, allowing 10 hits and eight earned runs in only 5 1/3 innings.
This one was pretty much doomed from the start. Toronto strung together three runs in the first inning and kept the slugfest going with two more in the second and another three in the fourth. Gonzalez was lifted after throwing just 81 pitches, finishing the afternoon with three walks and a pair of strikeouts. The right-hander has done nothing to instill confidence this year, winning just one of his 10 starts with a 5.17 ERA. He could be pitching for his rotation spot when he takes the hill Friday against Houston. Jun 25 - 5:58 PM

Miguel Gonzalez held the Red Sox to one run on four hits over 6 2/3 innings Monday.

Gonzalez walked two while yielded just four singles, but an equally strong pitching performance from Sox starter Steven Wright left both pitchers out of the decision. It was still an encouraging showing from the 32-year-old, who struck out five on the night. Gonzalez now has a 4.29 ERA and 1.45 WHIP in 10 games, including nine starts. He'll next take the hill Saturday against the Blue Jays.
Jun 20 - 11:22 PM

Miguel Gonzalez allowed eight hits and seven runs over 3 1/3 innings in Tuesday's loss to the Tigers.

Gonzalez managed to keep the ball in the yard, but five doubles, along with four free passes, did plenty of damage in their own right. The outing was easily his worst in eight starts this year, raising his ERA from 3.57 to 4.74 in the process. Gonzalez is just 1-2 for his efforts, and he's now got a 1.53 WHIP to go with it. Things don't get any easier for the 32-year-old on Monday when he faces the Red Sox in Fenway.

Miguel Gonzalez twirled a gem in a spot start against the Nationals on Thursday, allowing only one run on three hits over six strong innings.

The veteran right-hander punched out five and didn't walk a batter in the contest. The only blemish on his evening was a solo homer by Daniel Murphy in the fifth inning. With Mat Latos getting designated for assignment on Thursday, Gonzalez has an opportunity to stick in the starting rotation for as long as he continues to shut down the opposition. He'll take on the Indians his next time out in Cleveland on Saturday.
Jun 10 - 12:27 AM

Miguel Gonzalez will make a spot start for the White Sox on Thursday versus the Nationals.

Gonzalez was pushed to the bullpen following the acquisition of James Shields, but he's needed Thursday with Carlos Rodon (neck) on the shelf. Gonzalez owns a 3.93 ERA, 1.52 WHIP, and 29/15 K/BB ratio in 34 1/3 innings this season for Chicago. He's a poor fantasy streaming option against Washington.
Jun 7 - 5:51 PM

Miguel Gonzalez tossed five innings of one-run ball Wednesday in a no-decision versus the Mets.

Gonzalez walked five but gave up only three hits in the tightrope-walking afternoon outing at Citi Field. Chicago won the game in 13 innings, with Matt Albers scoring the go-ahead run and earning the win.
Jun 1 - 6:02 PM

Miguel Gonzalez surrendered three runs in 6 1/3 innings Friday against the Royals.

Gonzalez gave up two runs over the first six innings and was pulled after allowing a one-out double to Brett Eibner in the seventh. The Royals eventually took the lead in the frame against Chicago’s bullpen. The 32-year-old struck out five and walked none in the no-decision and now holds a 4.50 ERA and 24/10 K/BB ratio in 28 innings through his first five starts with the club. Three of his starts have been pretty solid, but there’s obviously not a lot to get excited about here in fantasy leagues. He’ll square off against the Mets in New York in his next outing.
May 27 - 11:54 PM

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.
May 10 - 12:36 AM

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.
