Miguel Gonzalez was outstanding in Sunday's victory over the Rangers, racking up six strikeouts over six innings of shutout baseball.
Gonzalez scattered four hits and four walks on the afternoon. The Rangers entered the day with one of the highest implied team totals on the board, but the crafty right-hander had other ideas in mind. Gonzalez now sports a 4.44 ERA, 1.47 WHIP and 71/45 K/BB ratio over 119 2/3 innings on the season. He'll look to replicate this fine effort when he takes on the Tigers on Friday. Aug 20 - 6:31 PM

Miguel Gonzalez allowed one earned run, five hits and three walks with four strikeouts over six innings in a no-decision on the road Tuesday against the Dodgers.

Gonzalez has posted quality starts in five of his past six outings, including each of his past two contests. He only has two victories to show for his efforts, as run support hasn't exactly been a forte of the White Sox for most of the season. He'll look to get back into the win column on the road Sunday in Texas.
Aug 16 - 3:41 AM

Miguel Gonzalez pitched eight innings of one-run ball Wednesday in a victory over the Astros.

This comes just six days after he was pummeled for seven runs in 1 2/3 innings by the Red Sox. Gonzalez has faced an extremely difficult schedule of late -- his last five starts have come against clubs currently leading their divisions (the Dodgers, Cubs and Indians were his previous three opponents) -- but he's come through the stretch with four quality starts in five tries. He's just 6-10 with a 4.85 ERA overall, but some contender in need of help might want to pick him up as a fifth starter.
Aug 9 - 11:42 PM

Miguel Gonzalez was shelled for seven hits and seven runs in just 1 2/3 innings in Thursday’s loss to the Red Sox.

Gonzalez couldn’t get out of his own way on Thursday, allowing four runs in the first and another three in the third before getting the hook from manager Rick Renteria. He served up two home runs, one to Rafael Devers and the other to Mookie Betts. This was a pretty drastic departure for Gonzalez, who entered Thursday with a lifetime 2.59 ERA in eight outings including six starts at Fenway Park. Gonzalez faces another tough matchup in his next start Wednesday against Houston.
Aug 3 - 11:14 PM

Miguel Gonzalez allowed four runs - three earned - and six hits with three walks and four strikeouts over six innings in a no-decision against the Indians on Saturday.

Gonzalez also struck out four batters, throwing 71 of his 107 pitches for strikes. It wasn't a great line, but it was pretty good for Gonzalez, who entered with a 5-9 record. In fact, that's three consecutive quality starts in July, as Gonzalez has posted a 1-1 record and 2.33 ERA for his best production in any month this season. He'll be back at it Thursday evening in Boston.
Jul 30 - 12:18 AM

Miguel Gonzalez tossed 7 1/3 innings of one-run ball in Monday's 3-1 victory over the Cubs.

Gonzalez recorded only three strikeouts and also walked three, but five of the seven hits he allowed were singles and he limited the damage to an RBI groundout. The veteran right-hander has limited the Dodgers and now the Cubs to one run apiece in his two starts since returning from the disabled list. He'll try to keep it going against the Indians this weekend.
Jul 24 - 8:01 PM

Miguel Gonzalez pitched six innings of one-run ball Tuesday in a loss to the Dodgers.

Gonzalez was having a tough time before getting hurt last month and he didn't pitch very well on his rehab assignment, but he quieted a strong offense in this one. Unfortunately, matched up against Clayton Kershaw as he was, he fell to 4-9 anyway. He'll face the Cubs next.
Jul 18 - 11:52 PM

White Sox activated RHP Miguel Gonzalez from the 10-day disabled list.

Gonzalez struggled in a couple rehab starts with Double-A Birmingham, but his shoulder issue appears to be behind him. He'll re-enter the rotation in place of the departed Jose Quintana.
Jul 14 - 1:10 PM

Miguel Gonzalez (shoulder) will make his next rehab start with Double-A Birmingham.

Gonzalez allowed three earned runs on seven hits over 4 2/3 innings in his rehab debut last Thursday at Triple-A Charlotte, striking out one batter and walking none. The right-hander should be ready to return to the White Sox rotation sometime next week, though he can go on being ignored in standard fantasy leagues. Gonzalez had a 5.15 ERA and 45/26 K/BB ratio in 78 2/3 innings before landing on the disabled list June 15 with inflammation in his right shoulder.
Jul 12 - 12:33 PM

Miguel Gonzalez (shoulder) is set to begin a rehab assignment Thursday at Triple-A Charlotte.

It will be his first live game since he landed on the disabled list June 15 with inflammation in his right AC joint. Gonzalez could be ready after the All-Star break, but he'll return to a weak 5.15 ERA, 1.50 WHIP, and 45/26 K/BB ratio covering 78 2/3 innings.
Jul 6 - 12:30 PM

White Sox placed RHP Miguel Gonzalez on the 10-day disabled list, retroactive to June 15, with inflammation in his right AC joint.

Gonzalez has been pitching through soreness for the last month and it's showed in his numbers. He was given a cortisone shot and played catch Sunday, so it sounds like he might not be sidelined too long.
Jun 18 - 10:15 AM

Miguel Gonzalez got burned for eight runs in five innings and took a sharp loss to the Orioles on Wednesday.

Gonzalez just didn't have it today. He gave up nine hits and two walks and struck out only three batters. The back-breaker was a grand slam by catcher Welington Castillo in the fifth inning. Gonzalez is now 4-8 with a 5.49 ERA and an unsightly 1.50 WHIP. He has a paltry 45 strikeouts in 78 2/3 innings and is too dangerous to trust in mixed fantasy leagues.
Jun 15 - 1:20 AM

Miguel Gonzalez was hit hard for six runs in six innings to take a loss to the Tigers on Saturday.

He gave up 10 base hits, including home runs by Nick Castellanos, Alex Presley and Alex Avila. Gonzalez registered only one strikeout and did not issue a base-on-balls. He now has a 4-6 record with a 4.83 ERA after 11 starts. He has just 40 strikeouts in 69 innings.
Jun 3 - 7:58 PM

Miguel Gonzalez yielded three runs on six hits over 7 2/3 innings in Sunday's win over the Tigers.

Gonzalez was on-point throughout in this one. He carried a perfect game into the seventh inning, one which was finally broken up on a single by Alex Avila to lead off that frame. The veteran right-hander struck out six without walking a batter in the outing. With this strong showing in the books, Gonzalez now owns a 4.43 ERA, 1.40 WHIP and 39/20 K/BB ratio across 63 frames. He will try to fool the Tigers once more when he takes a road trip to Detroit for his next scheduled start.
May 28 - 5:34 PM

Miguel Gonzalez surrendered five runs -- four earned -- over five-plus innings Monday as the White Sox fell to the Diamondbacks.

Daniel Descalso tagged Gonzalez for a three-run homer in the bottom of the fourth inning and Paul Goldschmidt added a solo shot in the bottom of the sixth. Gonzalez is now 3-5 with a 4.55 ERA and 1.48 WHIP through nine starts this season. He has a weak 33/20 K/BB ratio in 55 1/3 innings.
