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. Aug 23 - 11:54 PM

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."

White Sox placed RHP Miguel Gonzalez on the 15-day disabled list with a strained right groin.

Gonzalez was injured during Thursday's start. It's unclear at this point how long he'll be sidelined or who will replace him in the White Sox' rotation.
Aug 12 - 12:03 PM

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

Gonzalez suffered a strained right groin in Thursday's game against Kansas City and will now need at least 15 days to recover from it. He was just starting to hit his stride with a 3.31 ERA in six second-half appearances. The White Sox will announce a corresponding move on Friday.
Aug 11 - 11:12 PM

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.
Aug 11 - 9:09 PM

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.
Aug 5 - 11:39 PM

Miguel Gonzalez surrendered two runs -- one earned -- in seven innings but had to settle for a no-decision when the White Sox' bullpen blew his lead before coming back to win 6-5 in 10 innings on Saturday.

He struck out five batters, walked one and gave up six hits. He has earned only two wins in 16 starts despite having a pretty decent 4.06 ERA. He has 75 strikeouts and 33 walks in 95 1/3 innings.
Jul 30 - 11:08 PM

Miguel Gonzalez took a no-decision in Wednesday's loss to the Mariners, allowing three runs on four hits over six-plus innings.

Gonzalez surrendered a two-run homer to Leonys Martin in the second inning. The third run on his line would score courtesy of the bullpen after he put Adam Lind on base to lead off the seventh inning. The veteran right-hander has been decidedly average through 14 starts (81 2/3 innings) and holds a 4.41 ERA, 1.33 WHIP and 62/30 K/BB ratio for the season as a whole. A cross-city showdown with the rival Cubs shows next on his schedule.
Jul 20 - 9:05 PM

Miguel Gonzalez fired seven shutout innings to lead the White Sox to a 5-0 victory over the Yankees on Wednesday, surrendering only five hits and one walk while striking out three.

It was only the second time in 12 starts that he has held his opponent scoreless. Today's win boosts his record to 2-4 with a 4.39 ERA and 1.39 WHIP heading into the All Star break. Despite the great game today, the 32-year-old veteran is on the fringe of being roster-worthy in standard mixed leagues.
Jul 6 - 11:38 PM

Miguel Gonzalez took the loss Friday against the Astros after allowing three runs over seven innings.

It was his longest outing of the year. Gonzalez limited the Astros to one run over the first six innings before giving up a two-run homer to Carlos Gomez in the seventh. He struck out four and walked in a pair in the loss and now sits at 1-4 with a 4.88 ERA and 48/26 K/BB ratio over 62 2/3 innings. There’s no fantasy upside to be found here.
Jul 1 - 11:37 PM

Miguel Gonzalez imploded Saturday in a loss to the Blue Jays, allowing 10 hits and eight earned runs in only 5 1/3 innings.

This one was pretty much doomed from the start. Toronto strung together three runs in the first inning and kept the slugfest going with two more in the second and another three in the fourth. Gonzalez was lifted after throwing just 81 pitches, finishing the afternoon with three walks and a pair of strikeouts. The right-hander has done nothing to instill confidence this year, winning just one of his 10 starts with a 5.17 ERA. He could be pitching for his rotation spot when he takes the hill Friday against Houston.
Jun 25 - 5:58 PM

Miguel Gonzalez held the Red Sox to one run on four hits over 6 2/3 innings Monday.

Gonzalez walked two while yielded just four singles, but an equally strong pitching performance from Sox starter Steven Wright left both pitchers out of the decision. It was still an encouraging showing from the 32-year-old, who struck out five on the night. Gonzalez now has a 4.29 ERA and 1.45 WHIP in 10 games, including nine starts. He'll next take the hill Saturday against the Blue Jays.
Jun 20 - 11:22 PM

Miguel Gonzalez allowed eight hits and seven runs over 3 1/3 innings in Tuesday's loss to the Tigers.

Gonzalez managed to keep the ball in the yard, but five doubles, along with four free passes, did plenty of damage in their own right. The outing was easily his worst in eight starts this year, raising his ERA from 3.57 to 4.74 in the process. Gonzalez is just 1-2 for his efforts, and he's now got a 1.53 WHIP to go with it. Things don't get any easier for the 32-year-old on Monday when he faces the Red Sox in Fenway.
Jun 15 - 12:02 AM

Miguel Gonzalez twirled a gem in a spot start against the Nationals on Thursday, allowing only one run on three hits over six strong innings.

The veteran right-hander punched out five and didn't walk a batter in the contest. The only blemish on his evening was a solo homer by Daniel Murphy in the fifth inning. With Mat Latos getting designated for assignment on Thursday, Gonzalez has an opportunity to stick in the starting rotation for as long as he continues to shut down the opposition. He'll take on the Indians his next time out in Cleveland on Saturday.
Jun 10 - 12:27 AM

Miguel Gonzalez will make a spot start for the White Sox on Thursday versus the Nationals.

Gonzalez was pushed to the bullpen following the acquisition of James Shields, but he's needed Thursday with Carlos Rodon (neck) on the shelf. Gonzalez owns a 3.93 ERA, 1.52 WHIP, and 29/15 K/BB ratio in 34 1/3 innings this season for Chicago. He's a poor fantasy streaming option against Washington.
