Miguel Gonzalez was battered by the Jays on Wednesday, allowing four runs -- three earned -- over 3 2/3 innings in a loss.
The line may not look awful, but Gonzalez was largely ineffective against a Jays lineup that could smell an AL East title. He gave up four hits and walked three in the outing, certainly not the way he wanted to end his 2015 campaign. With the loss, Gonzalez finishes the year 9-12 with a 4.91 ERA and 1.40 WHIP in 26 starts. Sep 30 - 7:28 PM

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

Gonzalez has been sidelined since August 30 due to right shoulder inflammation, but he'll make his return Tuesday against the Blue Jays. We're not expecting much from a fantasy perspective, but he could get some peace of mind going into the offseason.
Sep 29 - 12:10 PM

Miguel Gonzalez (shoulder) will return from the disabled list to start for the Orioles on Tuesday.

He'll do battle against the hard-hitting Blue Jays at home on Tuesday. That will give him the chance to make two starts before the season comes to an end. Gonzalez has been sidelined since late August due to inflammation in his right shoulder.
Sep 26 - 2:43 PM

Miguel Gonzalez (shoulder) is aiming to return to the Orioles' rotation next Tuesday.

Gonzalez has been on the shelf since late August with inflammation in his throwing shoulder. He tossed 45 pitches in a simulated game on Wednesday without issue and is scheduled for a bullpen session this Friday. The right-hander would be taking on the Blue Jays at Camden Yards if he's cleared to pitch Tuesday.
Sep 23 - 4:16 PM

Miguel Gonzalez (shoulder) threw a successful 30-pitch bullpen session on Sunday.

Gonzalez reported no issues afterwards. The next step will be for him to through a simulated game at some point during the week, where if all goes well he will be cleared to rejoin the O's rotation over the weekend.
Sep 20 - 5:53 PM

Miguel Gonzalez (shoulder) will throw a bullpen session on Sunday.

He'll then face hitters on Tuesday or Wednesday. Gonzalez has missed all of September with shoulder and elbow inflammation but hopes to make it back for a couple starts before the end of the season.
Sep 18 - 5:37 PM

Miguel Gonzalez (shoulder) could make two starts before the end of the season.

That's assuming his rehab progresses. Gonzalez has been battling shoulder and elbow inflammation over the past two weeks, but he's been playing catch this week and hopes to get back on the mound soon. The 31-year-old owns a 4.85 ERA over 25 starts this season.
Sep 17 - 5:45 PM

Miguel Gonzalez (shoulder) is scheduled to throw from a distance of 90 feet on Wednesday.

He'll stretch things out to 120 feet on Friday before advancing to bullpen sessions. Gonzalez has been sidelined for the past two weeks with shoulder and elbow inflammation, but he's hoping to make it back before the end of the season.
Sep 15 - 3:30 PM

Miguel Gonzalez (shoulder) felt great while throwing on flat ground Monday.

He'll throw on flat ground at least once more before progressing to mound work. The Orioles remain hopeful that Gonzalez can make it back for a start or two at the end of the season. The righty has been out the last two weeks with shoulder and elbow inflammation.
Sep 14 - 4:36 PM

Miguel Gonzalez (elbow) is scheduled to resume throwing on Monday.

He'll start his throwing progression by playing catch from 45-60 feet. The right-hander claims that his elbow and shoulder are now pain-free. With only a few weeks left in the regular season, it's unlikely that he returns in time to contribute.
Sep 12 - 11:54 AM

Orioles placed RHP Miguel Gonzalez on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to August 31, with right shoulder and elbow inflammation.

The move was made so that Jorge Rondon could be added to the roster, as he was sent down fewer than 10 days ago. Gonzalez hopes to return before the end of the season, but it's not a given. Mike Wright is taking his spot in the rotation.
Sep 4 - 3:45 PM

Miguel Gonzalez (elbow, shoulder) is expected to be placed on the disabled list Friday.

Gonzalez felt discomfort in both his shoulder and elbow following his most recent start on Sunday, but tests revealed only inflammation. Still, he's going to get an extended rest. The 31-year-old has struggled to the tune of a 7.46 ERA over his last seven starts, so that's probably a good thing.
Sep 3 - 5:30 PM

MRIs on Miguel Gonzalez's right elbow and shoulder showed only inflammation.

Gonzalez has dealt with shoulder soreness for a little while and thinks he might have caused an elbow injury but compensating for it. However, the good news is that he's not dealing with any structural issues. The right-hander is expected to miss at least one turn but should rejoin the Orioles' rotation at some point later this month.
Sep 1 - 7:46 PM

Miguel Gonzalez will undergo an MRI on his right shoulder and right elbow on Tuesday.

Orioles manager Buck Showalter noted prior to Monday's game that Gonzalez had some soreness in "a couple places," and now we know more specifics. He already had a cortisone shot in his shoulder and will have both body parts examined to see if he's dealing with an structural damage. Gonzalez likely would have already been placed on the disabled list if roster expansion wasn't a day away. He figures to miss at least one start.
Aug 31 - 10:32 PM

Orioles manager Buck Showalter said Monday that Miguel Gonzalez is nursing some soreness in "a couple places."

The skipper wouldn't offer any more details but did say that trainer Richie Bancells was a little concerned and it's possible Gonzalez's next start could be affected. More should be known about the righty's situation later this week.
