White Sox's Gio Gonzalez: Plays catch Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gonzalez (shoulder) played catch Friday, Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

Gonzalez experienced shoulder discomfort during his offseason throwing program and is being held back early in training camp. "We're in no hurry at this point, you know?" manager Rick Renteria said. "So we'll take our time." Despite the issue, the White Sox anticipate Gonzalez being ready for Opening Day.

White Sox's Gio Gonzalez: Dealing with shoulder discomfort
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gonzalez is dealing with left shoulder discomfort but should be ready for Opening Day, James Fegan of The Athletic reports.

The shoulder problem doesn't appear to be a major worry, but it's never a positive to see a pitcher dealing with arm troubles right at the start of camp. Still, Gonzalez should open the year in the starting rotation, barring setbacks.

White Sox's Gio Gonzalez: Agrees to deal with White Sox
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gonzalez signed a contract with the White Sox on Thursday, Jon Heyman of MLB Network reports.

Gonzalez dealt with arm and shoulder injuries in 2019, but he still managed to record a 3.50 ERA with a 1.29 WHIP over 19 appearances (17 starts) with the Brewers. The southpaw could serve either as a back-end starter or bullpen piece for the White Sox as he looks to bounce back from an injury-plagued campaign.

Brewers' Gio Gonzalez: Won't play in NL Wild Card Game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gonzalez is not on the roster for Tuesday's National League Wild Card Game.

Gonzalez threw 4.2 innings Saturday and won't be called upon on just two days' rest. If the Brewers defeat the Nationals on Tuesday, he'll likely factor into the team's NLDS plans.

Brewers' Gio Gonzalez: Unlikely to be available Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gonzalez isn't expected to be available to pitch in Tuesday's game against the Nationals, Sam Fortier of The Washington Post reports.

Gonzalez fired 72 pitches in Sunday's regular-season finale, so he'll need at least a few more days before he's ready to take the mound again. The Brewers figure to use him as a reliever during the postseason, though they'll have to get past Tuesday first.

Brewers' Gio Gonzalez: Keeps Rockies off scoreboard
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gonzalez allowed four hits and two runs while striking out five over 4.2 scoreless frames in a no-decision versus the Rockies on Saturday.

Gonzalez has recently served as a primary reliever, but he did well as a traditional starter in this contest, throwing 40 of his 72 pitches for strikes. The 34-year-old has seen mostly limited innings in his appearances, posting a 3.50 ERA and 1.29 WHIP in 87.1 innings this season. He produced a 78:37 K:BB and 3-2 record as well.

Brewers' Gio Gonzalez: Rejoining rotation Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gonzalez is scheduled to start Saturday at Colorado, Sophia Minnaert of FOX Sports Wisconsin reports.

Gonzalez worked as a primary pitcher behind Brandon Woodruff in his last two outings, but he'll serve as a traditional starter for his final appearance of the regular season Saturday. The 34-year-old has pitched well in limited innings during September, posting a 1.47 ERA, 1.04 WHIP and 15:7 K:BB in five outings (18.1 frames).

Brewers' Gio Gonzalez: First win since May
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gonzalez tossed 3.1 scoreless innings of relief and picked up his third win of the season in Sunday's victory over the Pirates.

Gonzalez worked as a primary pitcher a second straight time through the rotation, and that ultimately resulted in him picking up his first win since May 15. While Gonzalez has not helped fantasy players in the win department the last few months, he has done decent work in the ratio categories, posting a 3.70 ERA and 1.29 WHIP across 82.2 innings this season.

Brewers' Gio Gonzalez: Another piggyback assignment on tap
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gonzalez is slated to piggyback starter Brandon Woodruff in Sunday's series finale with the Pirates.

Gonzalez moved to the bullpen Tuesday to accommodate Woodruff's return from the injured list, but the veteran southpaw still ended up pitching the most innings for the Brewers in their 3-1 win over the Padres that day. With Woodruff limited to two innings (37 pitches) following a two-month absence, Gonzalez followed him with three scoreless frames (53 pitches). The Brewers have indicated that Woodruff will add around 15-to-20 pitches to his count in his final two turns through the rotation during the regular season, so expect the division of labor between him and Gonzalez to be more even during Sunday's contest.

Brewers' Gio Gonzalez: Excels in piggyback role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gonzalez scattered two hits and a walk over three scoreless innings in relief and struck out four Tuesday in the Brewers' 3-1 win over the Padres.

Brandon Woodruff's return from the injured list resulted in Gonzalez losing his starting role, but the lefty ended up handling the larger workload of the two while manager Craig Counsell deployed the duo as a piggyback tandem. The piggyback arrangement won't necessarily be in place when Woodruff's next turn comes up, but Gonzalez should have ample opportunity to eat innings behind any of the team's rotation members. No Brewers pitcher has covered more than 6.1 innings in any game since Jordan Lyles tossed seven frames Aug. 11.

Brewers' Gio Gonzalez: Shifts to piggyback role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gonzalez will follow Brandon Woodruff (oblique) on Tuesday against the Padres, Todd Rosiak of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

Woodruff is ready to return from an oblique injury, though he hasn't yet built up to a full starter's workload. He'll bump Gonzalez from the rotation, but the veteran should still be expecting to throw multiple innings Tuesday. It's unclear if he'll be shifted to a typical bullpen role following Tuesday's contest.

Brewers' Gio Gonzalez: Yields two runs in four frames
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gonzalez allowed two runs on seven hits with zero walks and three strikeouts across four innings during a no-decision against the Marlins on Thursday.

The veteran southpaw has allowed three runs in his last 12 innings, but that covers a span of three outings, as Gonzalez hasn't pitched deep into games recently. Gonzalez has limited his value by not working long enough to even qualify for wins. He is 2-2 with a 4.01 ERA, 1.35 WHIP and 66 strikeouts in 76.1 innings this season. Gonzalez will pitch next against the Padres at home Tuesday.

Brewers' Gio Gonzalez: Provides five strong innings
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gonzalez gave up one run on two hits and two walks across five innings during Saturday's 3-2 win over the Cubs. He struck out three and did not factor in the decision.

Gonzalez issued four walks in each of his past four starts, but he illustrated better command Saturday while giving up only one hard-hit ball, a solo homer to Addison Russell. The veteran left-hander has a 3.98 ERA, 1.33 WHIP and 63:34 K:BB over 72.1 innings and lines up to pitch at Miami on Thursday.

Brewers' Gio Gonzalez: Struggles with control
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gonzalez allowed no hits and four walks while striking out two through three scoreless innings in a no-decision against the Cubs on Sunday.

Gonzalez didn't allow a run, but he wasn't efficient, throwing only 22 of his 56 pitches for strikes. Gonzalez only threw one first-pitch strike to the 13 batters he faced. The left-hander has a 4.14 ERA with 60 strikeouts and a 4.41 FIP through 14 starts this season. Gonzalez is scheduled to make his next start Saturday against the Cubs at Miller Park.

Brewers' Gio Gonzalez: Drilled for nine runs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gonzalez (2-2) allowed nine runs (seven earned) on nine hits and four walks over five innings Monday, striking out five batters and taking the loss against St. Louis.

After giving up just one run in five innings against the Cardinals in his last outing, Gonzalez got absolutely shelled in this one. He coughed up two runs in the first inning before giving up a massive six-run second. For good measure, Yadier Molina took him deep in the fourth. Gonzalez will put his 4.34 ERA on the line against the Cubs in Chicago on Sunday.

August 22, 2019 11:32 PM
Brewers' Gio Gonzalez: Fans six in no-decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gonzalez didn't factor into the decision in Tuesday's 9-4 loss to the Cardinals, giving up one run on three hits and four walks over five innings while striking out six.

The veteran southpaw wasn't exactly sharp, tossing only 47 of 92 pitches for strikes. However, aside from a Harrison Bader triple, he didn't allow any loud contact and kept the Brewers in the game. Gonzalez will take a 3.64 ERA and 53:24 K:BB through 59.1 innings into his next start Monday -- a rematch with the Cards back in Miller Park.

Brewers' Gio Gonzalez: Surrenders five earned runs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gonzalez allowed five earned runs on five hits and four walks while striking out five across 3.2 innings Wednesday against the Twins. He did not factor into the decision.

There was little positive to take away from Gonzalez's stat line, as he allowed three solo home runs and also struggled mightily with his control. While this was his shortest outing of the season, Gonzalez has struggled to pitch deep into games since returning from the injured list on July 20, logging 4.1 or fewer innings in three of his five starts. However, his 3.81 ERA and 1.25 WHIP across 54.1 innings this season remain respectable, and he'll look to bounce back in his next outing Monday at St. Louis.

Brewers' Gio Gonzalez: Stingy in no-decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gonzalez didn't factor into the decision in Friday's 6-5 win over the Rangers, allowing one run on two hits and three walks over five innings while striking out two.

The veteran southpaw wasn't dominant, but aside from a solo shot by Hunter Pence, Gonzalez didn't give up any hard contact and exited the game in line for his third win of the year. He'll carry a 3.20 ERA and 42:16 K:BB through 50.2 innings into his next start Wednesday, at home against the Twins.

Brewers' Gio Gonzalez: Strikes out four in return from IL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gonzalez (shoulder) didn't factor into the decision in Saturday's 4-1 loss to the Cubs, allowing one run on five hits and one walk over 4.1 innings while striking out four.

The veteran lefty returned from the injured list and only permitted a second-inning run on a Javier Baez triple and a wild pitch. He was removed after 71 pitches (43 strikes). He'll take a 3.35 ERA and 40:13 K:BB over 45.2 innings into his next start Friday at home against the Rangers.

August 1, 2019 02:32 PM
Brewers' Gio Gonzalez: Cleared to start Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gonzalez (shoulder) will start Saturday against the Cubs, Adam McCalvy of reports.

Gonzalez threw a bullpen session with no issues Thursday, clearing the way for him to make his next start on schedule. The southpaw delivered a quality start against the Cubs his last time out, allowing two runs on three hits and a walk while striking out nine in 6.1 innings.
