Chi Chi Gonzalez gave up five runs on 10 hits and two walks over five frames but escaped with a no-decision in Monday's 9-6 win over the Yankees.
He needed 87 pitches to cover the five innings, striking out just two batters. Gonzalez was up for a start with the Rangers dealing with multiple injuries to their rotation. He could get another shot this weekend in Minnesota but can be ignored for fantasy purposes. Jun 28 - 2:58 AM

Rangers recalled RHP Chi Chi Gonzalez from Triple-A Round Rock.

Rodriguez was called up to make his major-league season debut Monday against the Yankees. The 24-year-old had a 5.04 ERA across 14 starts in Triple-A this season and isn't a recommended fantasy option.
Jun 27 - 7:50 PM

Chi Chi Gonzalez will make his season debut for the Rangers Monday against the Yankees.

Gonzalez will fill the rotation spot left by Colby Lewis, who was just placed on the 15-day disabled list with a strained lat. The 24-year-old has had a rocky year in the minor leagues with three wins and a 5.04 ERA in 14 starts for Triple-A Round Rock. Gonzalez won't be a recommended fantasy option when he takes the mound Monday at Yankee Stadium.
Jun 25 - 6:37 PM

Rangers optioned RHP Chi Chi Gonzalez to Triple-A Round Rock; re-assigned RHP Nick Tepesch to minor league camp.

Gonzalez fumbled away an opportunity at a rotation spot with a spring that included a 4.73 ERA and just two strikeouts over 13 1/3 innings. He'll be heard from at some point this season.
Mar 25 - 5:15 PM

Chi Chi Gonzalez held the Reds to just one hit over five scoreless innings on Thursday.

Gonzalez walked three batters, but the Reds couldn’t get anything going against him. He struck out two batters and induced eight ground outs. It was a huge improvement from his start last Saturday and he likely pushed himself back into prime position to hold down the fifth spot in the starting rotation until Yu Darvish (elbow) is ready to return.
Mar 24 - 6:43 PM

Chi-Chi Gonzalez posted his second scoreless start of the spring against the Reds on Wednesday, hurling three innings of three-hit ball.

Gonzalez walked two and failed to notch a strikeout, but despite the lack of whiffs, he's now up to five scoreless innings of work through two spring appearances. The 24-year-old right-hander held a serviceable 3.90 ERA in 14 games (10 starts) as a rookie in 2015. That came with an uninspiring 30/32 K/BB ratio in 67 innings. While Gonzalez will presumably have a rotation spot until Yu Darvish returns from Tommy John surgery, his fantasy prospects are rather limited at this point.
Mar 9 - 8:36 PM

Chi-Chi Gonzalez allowed one hit over two scoreless frames against the Dodgers on Friday.

Gonzalez posted a 3.90 ERA over 10 starts and four relief appearances as a rookie last season, though it came with just 30 strikeouts and 32 walks in 67 innings. He'll presumably get a chance to hold down a rotation spot until Yu Darvish returns from Tommy John surgery, but there’s not much fantasy upside here.
Mar 4 - 6:25 PM

Chi Chi Gonzalez survived Sunday's win over the A's, allowing three runs (one earned) on two hits over 5 1/3 innings.

Gonzalez struck out two and walked three, with both runs on his line scoring in the sixth inning on the strength of a Danny Valencia triple. This was just a spot start. He's filling in for Cole Hamels to give the Rangers' mid-season acquisition an additional day of rest. In 60 1/3 innings, Gonzo holds a 4.03 ERA and 1.24 WHIP.

Rangers recalled RHP Chi Chi Gonzalez from Triple-A Round Rock.

The right-hander will make a spot start on Sunday against the Athletics as the Rangers have opted to give Cole Hamels an extra day of rest. The 23-year-old hurler has posted a 4.25 ERA, 1.27 WHIP and 26/25 K/BB ratio over 55 innings with the big league club this season.
Sat, Sep 12, 2015 12:15:00 AM

Chi Chi Gonzalez will start for the Rangers on Sunday afternoon against the A's.

That is Cole Hamels' turn in the rotation, but Hamels is going to get an additional day of rest after taking a comebacker off his shoulder on Tuesday. Gonzalez, 23, owns a 4.25 ERA, 1.27 WHIP, and 26/25 K/BB ratio in 55 innings (nine starts) this season at the major league level. He's not a terrible fantasy streaming option versus Oakland.
Thu, Sep 10, 2015 02:03:00 PM

Rangers optioned RHP Chi Chi Gonzalez to Triple-A Round Rock.

He allowed three runs over six innings in Tuesday's loss to the Mariners. With Derek Holland (shoulder) returning from the disabled list Wednesday, there's no longer a need for Gonzalez.
Tue, Aug 18, 2015 11:27:00 PM

Chi Chi Gonzalez allowed three runs over six innings in Tuesday's loss to the Mariners.

Gonzalez got off to a rocky start, allowing a Nelson Cruz RBI double and Seth Smith two-run homer in the first inning, but he settled down from there on. The right-hander struck out seven while giving up five hits and a walk. Gonzalez now owns a 4.25 ERA and 1.27 WHIP through nine starts. His next start will come Sunday at the Tigers.
Tue, Aug 18, 2015 11:12:00 PM

Starting in place of Cole Hamels (groin), Chi Chi Gonzalez allowed five runs on five hits over 5 2/3 innings during a Thursday no-decision against Twins.

Gonzalez walked five against four strikeouts. The Twins put up four runs in the second and an additional run in the sixth to account for the scoring on his line. This is likely the only start Gonzalez will make before being sent back to Triple-A Round Rock. He holds a 4.22 ERA and 1.31 WHIP in 49 major league innings this season.
Thu, Aug 13, 2015 04:12:00 PM

Rangers recalled RHP Chi Chi Gonzalez from Triple-A Round Rock.

Gonzalez will start in place of Cole Hamels (groin) on Thursday afternoon in Minnesota. The 23-year-old Gonzalez hasn't missed a ton of bats this season at the major league level and makes for a poor fantasy stream.
Thu, Aug 13, 2015 10:47:00 AM

Chi Chi Gonzalez will be called up to start for the Rangers on Thursday against the Twins.

That is Cole Hamels' turn in the rotation, but Hamels had to be scratched because of a groin issue. Gonzalez has registered a 3.74 ERA, 1,25 WHIP, and 15/19 K/BB ratio in 43 1/3 innings (seven starts) this season at the major league level. He's not the most attractive fantasy option in what's likely to be a single spot start.
