Marco Gonzales was lifted after allowing two runs in four innings Friday against the Angels.
Gonzales allowed Albert Pujols to steal second base in the first, which might have been grounds for instant removal. Still, the Mariners let him continue on and throw 73 pitches in four innings. He ends the year 1-1 with a 5.40 ERA in seven starts and three relief appearances for the club. It's still possible it'll all work out in the end, but if the Mariners could undo the Tyler O'Neill trade, we imagine they would. Sat, Sep 30, 2017 02:11:00 AM

Marco Gonzales notched his first win for the Mariners after allowing three runs in five innings Tuesday against the Rangers.

It wasn't much, but it turned out to be good enough in a game in which the Mariners scored seven runs over the first three innings. Gonzales was making his first start since Aug. 28. It's unclear if he'll remain in the rotation, but he has a shot.

Marco Gonzales will start for the Mariners on Tuesday in Texas.

It will be his first start since August 28, as Gonzales has made just one relief appearance over the last two weeks. The left-hander threw four scoreless frames in that relief outing but has struggled in his starts this year with an 8.25 ERA.

Marco Gonzales pitched four scoreless innings and struck out five in relief Saturday against the A's.

Gonzales deserved the win for his effort tonight, though it went to Edwin Diaz after his one scoreless inning. Gonzales came in with the Mariners down 6-2 in the fifth and left with the game tied 6-6 headed to the ninth. It will be interesting to see if he's put back into the rotation after this. Yovani Gallardo lasted just three innings tonight and might get replaced.

Mariners' manager Scott Servais confirmed Friday that Marco Gonzales will be bumped from the starting rotation for at least one turn to accommodate Mike Leake.

It's likely that he'll remain out of the rotation, but for now it's only confirmed that he'll miss one start. Gonzales has struggled mightily in his time with the Mariners, posting an 8.25 ERA and 1.96 WHIP in 24 innings.

Marco Gonzales was knocked around for five runs over 3 1/3 innings against the Orioles on Monday.

Gonzales gave up eight hits and walked a pair. His night came to an end after he hit Tim Beckham with the bases loaded to force in a run. He now owns an 8.25 ERA through six starts in the majors this season (including five with the Mariners) and probably shouldn’t be starting games in the middle of a playoff race.

Marco Gonzales gave up only two runs but lasted just 4 2/3 innings Tuesday in a loss to the Braves.

Unfortunately, the 4 2/3 frames is actually the deepest he’s pitched into a game in his five starts in the majors this season. He did record five strikeouts on the night, although he also walked three after walking just two total in his first four starts. Gonzales will take on the Orioles in Baltimore the next time out.

Marco Gonzales was tagged for nine hits and four runs over 4 1/3 innings Wednesday in a no-decision against the Orioles.

He struck out one and didn’t walk anyone. Things were going just fine for Gonzales until the fifth when the Orioles exploded for three runs on five hits including an RBI triple by Craig Gentry. He also let in a run on a wild pitch. We’ll see how Gonzales fares in his next outing Tuesday against Atlanta.

Marco Gonzales allowed one earned run, four hits and a walk with no strikeouts over 4 1/3 innings in a no-decision against the Angels on Friday.

Gonzales has posted two no-decisions with a 6.48 ERA across 8 1/3 innings in his two starts since coming up from Triple-A Tacoma. He has been filling in for the injured Felix Hernandez (biceps). If Hernandez isn't ready Wednesday then Gonzales is likely to take another turn against the Orioles.

Marco Gonzales allowed five runs on seven hits over four-plus innings in Sunday's win over the Royals.

Gonzales was gifted with a 7-0 lead after just two innings, but failed to take advantage of that huge cushion. Whit Merrifield burned him for a two-run home run in the third inning and three more runs would score on his line after he trotted back out for the fifth inning. Gonzales struck out five and walked one in the ineffectual outing. Depending on when Felix Hernandez (biceps) is ready to return, Gonzales might not be needed for another start.

Mariners recalled LHP Marco Gonzales from Triple-A Tacoma.

He'll start against the Royals on Saturday in place of the injured Felix Hernandez. Gonzales was acquired from the Cardinals prior to the trade deadline in exchange for outfielder Tyler O'Neill. He owns a 3.02 ERA, 1.00 WHIP and 73/22 K/BB ratio across 86 1/3 innings in the minor leagues this season, his first back from Tommy John surgery.

Mariners acquired LHP Marco Gonzales from the Cardinals in exchange for OF Tyler O'Neill.

A former first-round pick, Gonzales has been excellent in his first season back from Tommy John surgery, posting a 2.78 ERA and 64/17 K/BB ratio over 74 1/3 innings in the minors. The left-hander is a high-floor, low-ceiling type player who should be a solid mid- to back-end of the rotation option for the Mariners. It shouldn't be long before he gets a shot for them in the majors.

Marco Gonzales surrendered five earned runs over 3 1/3 innings Tuesday in a no-decision against the Brewers.

The lefty served up homers to Keon Broxton, Jesus Aguilar, and Travis Shaw. Aguilar and Shaw went back-to-back in the top of the fourth to give Milwaukee the lead. Gonzales was serving as the 26th man for Tuesday's doubleheader and probably won't get another appearance at the major league level for a while.

Cardinals recalled LHP Marco Gonzales from Triple-A Memphis.

Gonzales is the 26th man for Tuesday's doubleheader versus the Brewers and will start the nightcap. The left-hander has pitched well in his first year back from Tommy John surgery, posting a 2.97 ERA and 31/9 K/BB ratio over 36 1/3 innings between High- and Triple-A.

Marco Gonzales will start the second game of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Brewers.

Gonzales has looked good in his first year back from Tommy John surgery, posting a 2.97 ERA and 31/9 K/BB ratio over 36 1/3 innings between High- and Triple-A. The 25-year-old figures to be sent back down after the spot start.
