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.
May 23 - 12:22 AM

Miguel Gonzalez was tagged for five runs over five innings in a loss to the Padres on Friday.

Gonzalez had some rare struggles with his control, matching a season-high with four walks while throwing first-pitch strikes to just 15 out of the 28 batters he faced. He gave up eight hits — including a pair of home runs — in the loss. His ERA has jumped from 2.00 to 3.83 over his last three starts. He just doesn’t miss enough bats to have much in the way of fantasy appeal.
May 13 - 12:52 AM

Miguel Gonzalez pitched well in a losing effort against the Orioles on Friday, surrendering two runs on six hits over 6 2/3 innings.

The soft-tossing right-hander walked one and struck out five on the night. He got into a jam in the first inning and forced in the first run by hitting Jonathan Schoop, but settled in nicely afterwards, allowing only a solo homer to Chris Davis the rest of the way. He'll carry a 3.18 ERA and 1.29 WHIP into Thursday's matchup against the Twins.
May 5 - 10:26 PM

Miguel Gonzalez was pounded for seven runs -- six earned -- and 14 hits in six innings by the Tigers on Sunday.

Gonzalez was due for a clunker after gems against the Yankees and Royals. He's the first pitcher this season to give up 14 hits in a start. Alfredo Simon and Cole Hamels were the only two to do so last year.
Apr 30 - 5:45 PM

Miguel Gonzalez allowed just one unearned run over eight innings Monday as the White Sox routed the Royals 12-1.

Kansas City's only run came in the top of the third, when Whit Merrifield reached on a Todd Frazier fielding error and scored moments later on a Mike Moustakas double. Gonzalez allowed just two total hits and one walk while striking out five as he moved to 3-0 with a 2.00 ERA, 1.07 WHIP, and 20/8 K/BB ratio in 27 innings this season. We'll see if he has another eight innings in him next time out against the Tigers. Even with the hot start, he makes for a poor fantasy streaming option.
Apr 24 - 11:21 PM

Miguel Gonzalez allowed only one run on four hits and one walk across 8 1/3 innings in Tuesday's 4-1 win over the Yankees.

Gonzalez didn't give up a hit out of the infield all night, yielding a bunt single and three infield singles. He was pulled after issuing a one-out walk in the ninth even though he'd only thrown just 88 pitches. David Robertson forced in a run with a bases-loaded walk to charge a run to Gonzalez, but it hardly tarnishes what was an awesome night for the veteran righty. Gonzalez will try to keep it rolling against the Royals and Tigers next week.
Apr 18 - 9:47 PM

Miguel Gonzalez was handed a lead but couldn't last long enough to get the win, allowing three runs on eight hits over 4 2/3 innings against the Indians.

The Sox provided Gonzalez with seven runs of support after the first two innings, but he was only slightly more effective than his counterpart. Gonzalez allowed eight hits and walked four over his 4 2/3 innings, so he was actually fairly fortunate to have only allowed the three runs. He's now had one good start and one clunker through two outings. Gonzalez will try to get back in the win column Tuesday against the Yankees.
Apr 14 - 8:16 AM

Miguel Gonzalez limited the Twins to two runs over six innings, striking out six, in Saturday's victory.

Gonzalez allowed seven hits and walked two, but he managed to limit the damage on the scoreboard. The right-hander isn't exciting, but he seems to keep his team in the game more often than not. That said, Gonzalez isn't a consideration for our purposes. A rematch with the Twins on Friday is next up for the 32-year-old.
Apr 8 - 9:48 PM

Miguel Gonzalez couldn’t get out of his own way Wednesday in the White Sox’s Cactus League loss to the Athletics, giving up nine hits, four runs and one walk over 4 1/3 innings.

He logged four strikeouts before exiting. The A’s came out firing on Wednesday, hanging two runs on Gonzalez in the first and another two in the second. Gonzalez improved as the game went along but by then, the damage had already been done. Gonzalez is penciled in as Chicago’s No. 2 starter but makes for a thoroughly underwhelming fantasy option. His spring ERA sits at a dismal 5.68.
Mar 22 - 8:05 PM

White Sox and RHP Miguel Gonzalez avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $5.9 million contract.

Gonzalez was surprisingly cut loose by the Orioles last spring but caught on quickly in Chicago and held a 3.73 ERA over 135 innings. He was arbitration-eligible for the final time.
Jan 13 - 4:06 PM

Miguel Gonzalez pitched 8 1/3 innings of three-hit ball in the White Sox's 1-0 win over the Rays on Wednesday.

The Orioles chose to save $4 million by cutting Gonzalez this spring. It's a mistake that might cost them the wild card, as Gonzalez posted a 3.73 ERA in 23 starts (and one relief appearance) for the White Sox. Orioles starters have a 4.80 ERA at the moment.
