Miguel Gonzalez blanked the Red Sox for 6 1/3 innings in the Orioles' 4-0 victory Monday.

Gonzalez allowed six hits and walked three, but in the first, fourth and sixth innings, he was able to generate double-play balls after allowing the leadoff man to reach. Gonzalez has allowed just one run over 22 1/3 innings while winning his last three starts, and he's 9-7 with a 3.22 ERA overall.
Sep 8 - 10:38 PM

Miguel Gonzalez notched his first career shutout and complete game Wednesday as the Orioles topped the Reds 6-0.

It was a four-hitter for Gonzalez. He ended up with eight strikeouts and one walk in the 117-pitch gem. One of the league's most underrated hurlers three years running now, he's allowed four runs over 28 1/3 innings in his last four starts. The Orioles sent him to the minors in both July and August, but even then, he was always a good bet to go into the postseason as one of their four starters.
Sep 4 - 2:45 AM

Miguel Gonzalez tossed seven innings of one-run ball in Friday's 9-1 win over the Twins.

The only run scored on a solo homer from Trevor Plouffe in his final inning. Gonzalez gave up just four hits and one walk to go along with six strikeouts. He has allowed two earned runs or fewer in seven out of his last eight starts, lowering his ERA from 4.56 to 3.61 in the process. He'll try to keep it rolling in a favorable matchup against the Reds next time out.
Aug 29 - 11:27 PM

Miguel Gonzalez allowed two runs over 6 1/3 innings but took the loss against the Cubs on Sunday.

Making his first start since August 7, Gonzalez held the Cubs off the board until an Arismendy Alcantara solo home run in the fifth. Gonzalez gave up six hits without walking a batter on the afternoon. The right-hander also struck out three. Gonzalez and his 3.75 ERA will remain in the starting rotation for the time being, and his next start will come Friday against the Twins.
Aug 24 - 5:28 PM

Orioles recalled RHP Miguel Gonzalez from Triple-A Norfolk.

Gonzalez will rejoin the Baltimore rotation on Sunday versus the Cubs. With Ubaldo Jimenez relegated to relief duty, Gonzalez will remain among the Orioles' starting five indefinitely if he pitches well. He holds a 3.80 ERA over 20 games -- 19 starts -- for Baltimore this season.
Aug 24 - 12:14 PM

Miguel Gonzalez will rejoin the Orioles' rotation on Sunday versus the Cubs.

He'll regain his rotation spot at the expense of Ubaldo Jimenez, who has been demoted to the bullpen. Gonzalez has posted a 3.80 ERA over 20 games -- 19 starts -- for Baltimore this season.
Aug 19 - 6:51 PM

Miguel Gonzalez won't rejoin the Orioles' rotation until next weekend.

He had been expected to start on Wednesday, but the O's have decided to give the ball to Wei-Yin Chen that day. Gonzalez has posted a 3.80 ERA over 20 games -- 19 starts -- for Baltimore this season.
Aug 17 - 11:45 AM

Miguel Gonzalez could be recalled to start on Wednesday against the White Sox.

Orioles manager Buck Showalter won't confirm Gonzalez as Wednesday's starter, but the anticipation is that the righty will get the ball that day. "We’ve got three options. We can bring back Miguel and pitch him out of the bullpen, bring him back starting or leave him (in the minors)," Showalter said. "Those are the three things we have to decide."
Aug 17 - 9:57 AM

Orioles optioned RHP Miguel Gonzalez to Triple-A Norfolk.

Gonzalez was sent out to make room for Ubaldo Jimenez who returned to the rotation on Saturday. It's expected that he will make one start for the Tides before returning to the O's.
Aug 9 - 3:22 PM

Miguel Gonzalez picked up his sixth win on Thursday against the Blue Jays, holding the opposition to one run over six innings.

Opposing starter J.A. Happ was arguably more dominant, but Gonzalez was stingy, limiting the Jays to just four hits and a pair of walks while striking out four. His only mistake came in the fifth, when Anthony Gose swatted a solo home run to right field to make it 2-1. Gonzalez has had a decent season, as he's currently resting on a 3.80 ERA, a 1.41 WHIP, and an 80/41 K/BB ratio. He'll take on the Yankees at home next Tuesday.
Aug 7 - 10:18 PM

Miguel Gonzalez allowed seven hits and four runs over five innings in Saturday's tilt with the Mariners.

Gonzalez picked up the loss and dropped to 5-6. He out one and gave up home runs to Robinson Cano and Dustin Ackley. On the year he holds a 3.93 ERA and a 1.43 WHIP. He doesn't merit much fantasy consideration unless you're desperate for a spot starter in an AL-only league.
Aug 2 - 11:24 PM

Miguel Gonzalez allowed one run on eight hits over six innings but took a no-decision against the Mariners on Sunday.

Gonzalez had runners on base in every inning but the fifth, but he managed to hold the Mariners off the scoreboard for most of the afternoon. The right-hander has turned in four straight strong starts this month, allowing no more than two runs in any of his four turns, but he's got just one win over that span to show for it. He'll take a 5-5 record and 3.77 ERA into a rematch with the Mariners on Saturday.
Jul 27 - 8:36 PM

Miguel Gonzalez allowed just three hits and two runs in seven and two-thirds innings against the Angels on Tuesday.

While Gonzalez did walk four, he was able to keep the Angels off the board until the eighth inning, when Mike Trout launched a two-run homer. Gonzalez has made a habit of going deep into games as of late. He'd gone eight innings in each of his last two starts. This effort dropped his ERA to 3.91. If he's able to continue this recent trend, he's somebody to keep an eye on in deep AL-only leagues. Next time out he'll face the Mariners.
Jul 23 - 2:14 AM

Orioles recalled RHP Miguel Gonzalez from Triple-A Norfolk.

Gonzalez will start on Tuesday against the Angels after being optioned prior to the All-Star break so that he could continue pitching. He has a 4.04 ERA and 1.45 WHIP on the season and isn't a good streaming option Tuesday.
