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. Jun 11 - 3:45 PM

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.
