The Rangers are expected to call up pitching prospect Chi Chi Gonzalez to make his major league debut on Saturday against the Red Sox.
The club hasn't confirmed it yet, but they tipped their hand when they sent down Phil Klein and scratched Gonzalez from Thursday's scheduled outing at Triple-A Round Rock. Gonzalez holds a pedestrian 4.15 ERA and 26/19 K/BB ratio over 43 1/3 innings for Round Rock this season, but he's been better of late with a 2.20 mark and 13 strikeouts over his last 16 1/3 frames. The 23-year-old is one of the Rangers' best pitching prospects and projects as a mid-rotation starter in time, but he doesn't look ready to make a fantasy impact just yet. May 29 - 10:46 AM

Rangers reassigned RHPs Alex Gonzalez and Ross Wolf to minor league camp.

Gonzalez, one of the Rangers' top pitching prospects, was a dark horse to win a rotation spot this spring. The 23-year-old had a 2.66 ERA and 113/41 K/BB ratio in 138 2/3 innings last season between High-A Myrtle Beach and Double-A Frisco. He's not far off from the majors.

According to's T.R. Sullivan, the Braves asked for Rangers pitching prospect Alex Gonzalez in their negotiations about an Evan Gattis trade.

And the Rangers called that request a deal-breaker. Gonzalez, the 23rd overall pick in the 2013 MLB Amateur Draft, posted a 2.66 ERA, 1.18 WHIP, and 113/41 K/BB ratio in 138 2/3 innings this past season between High-A Myrtle Beach and Double-A Frisco. The Rangers are a nice fit for Gattis, but they're not going to surrender such a promising young pitcher to make a trade happen.

Rangers prospect RHP Alex "Chi Chi" Gonzalez was sharp in his Double-A debut on Tuesday, as he allowed only one hit and struck out six batters in five scoreless innings.

The No. 23 overall pick in the 2013 draft, Gonzalez was promoted to Double-A after registering a 2.62 ERA and 49-16 strikeout-to-walk ratio in 65.1 innings for High-A Myrtle Beach. Despite the Rangers’ ongoing rotation woes, the 22-year-old right-hander will likely spend the rest of the season developing in the minor leagues. If he were to reach the major leagues, then it would involve him jumping prospects such as Luke Jackson and Alec Asher on the organizational depth chart.

Rangers right-handed pitching prospect Alex Gonzalez threw eight shutout innings on Saturday for High-A Myrtle Beach, allowing five hits (all singles) and three walks, while striking out five and inducing two double plays.

Gonzalez was the 23rd overall pick out of Oral Roberts in the 2013 draft. He possesses a low-to-mid-90s fastball, an above-average slider with good tilt, and the potential for an average change up. He is less refined than most college pitchers, but has the potential to be a solid #3 pitcher.

Rangers agreed to terms with first-round pick RHP Alex Gonzalez.

According to Baseball America's Jim Callis, Gonzalez will receive $2.215 million, which is a bit more than the assigned slot value for the 23rd pick of $1.9206 million. Gonzalez has lots of upside, though some believe he might wind up in the bullpen.

Rangers picked Oral Roberts right-hander Alex Gonzalez with the 23rd selection.

Yes, another Alex Gonzalez. This one pitches, though. He's not very polished for a college pitcher, but his low-90s moving fastball could prove to be an excellent weapon. He also has a slider. Some think he's more likely to make it as a reliever than as a starter.
