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.

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.

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.

Miguel Gonzalez was hit hard in Friday's loss to the Indians, allowing four runs on eight hits in 4 1/3 innings.

The right-hander struck out two and didn't walk a batter in the contest. He kept the Tribe's offense at bay through the first three innings, but they broke through in the fourth with a two-run homer from Jose Ramirez and tacked on another pair in the fifth before chasing him. He'll carry a 3.98 ERA and 1.29 WHIP into Wednesday's start against the Rays.

Miguel Gonzalez allowed three runs over seven innings in a loss to the Royals on Saturday.

Gonzalez gave up six hits while striking out just two in the outing, but his quality start wasn't enough to spare him from taking his seventh loss. After being cast off by the Orioles at the end of spring, Gonzalez has been very good for the Sox this year, posting a 3.83 ERA in 22 appearances, including 21 starts. The 32-year-old has an American League Central showdown with the Indians on tap for Friday.

Miguel Gonzalez held the Tigers scoreless over 6 1/3 innings in the White Sox' 2-0 shutout on Tuesday.

Pitching for the first time in almost a month after sustaining a right groin strain, Gonzalez showed no ill effects in rendering the Tigers' potent lineup defenseless. The right-hander scattered six hits without issuing a free pass in the win. Through 20 appearances, including 19 starts, Gonzalez is now 3-6 with a 3.81 ERA and 1.31 WHIP this year. He'll try to build on that success Monday against the Indians.

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

Gonzalez will return to the White Sox starting rotation on Tuesday night against the Tigers. He got beat up on his minor league rehab assignment and probably shouldn't be trusted in standard fantasy leagues versus Detroit.

Miguel Gonzalez (groin) is expected to rejoin the White Sox' rotation on Tuesday against the Tigers.

Gonzalez was pounded for seven runs -- six earned -- and 11 hits over 4 1/3 innings in a rehab start with Triple-A Charlotte last Thursday, but the important thing is he feels healthy. "I’m ready," Gonzalez said. "It feels good. I didn’t feel anything and that was the most important thing. Just go out there and see how it felt."

Miguel Gonzalez (groin) is set to make a minor league rehab start with Triple-A Charlotte on Thursday.

If that goes smoothly, he should be cleared to rejoin the White Sox starting rotation next week. Gonzalez has been out since August 12 with a right groin strain.

Miguel Gonzalez (groin) is scheduled to throw another bullpen session Wednesday.

He made it through his first mound workout Sunday without issue and could be cleared for a minor league rehab start if Wednesday's workout goes smoothly. The right-hander has been on the 15-day disabled list since August 12 because of a right groin strain. He's made swift progress so far.

Miguel Gonzalez (groin) could throw off a mound Sunday.

The right-hander doesn't expect to be ready to pitch in a game for another couple weeks, however. Gonzalez had been pitching well of late before suffering a groin injury earlier this month. "It's tough to swallow, especially the way it was going," Gonzalez said. "I just have to keep grinding it out. I feel much better now."

Miguel Gonzalez (groin) will be placed on the disabled list.

Miguel Gonzalez left Thursday's game against the Royals with a strained right groin.

He made it through 21 pitches before exiting in the second inning. Gonzalez has pitched better of late, recording a 3.31 ERA in six starts since the All-Star break. He's likely to miss his next start Wednesday at Cleveland and there's a chance he could wind up on the disabled list.

Miguel Gonzalez logged a quality start in Friday's loss to the Orioles, allowing four runs (three earned) on 10 hits over his six frames.

The veteran right-hander struck out one and didn't walk a batter in the contest. The Orioles scored all of their runs in the first three frames, but Gonzalez was then able to settle down and keep them at bay for the rest of his night, keeping his team in the ballgame. He'll bring a middling 4.09 ERA and 1.33 WHIP into Thursday's start against the Royals in Kansas City.
