SP - SEA
Marco Gonzalez allowed two unearned runs in a win over the Angels on Thursday.
Gonzalez looked very good on Thursday, allowing no earned runs in 6.1 innings. He only walked one and gave up three hits, while striking out six. Efficient too, as he three 69 strikes in 94 pitches. He'll look to keep this going next time out against the Angels again on Wednesday.
Marco Gonzalez goes 4.1 innings, giving up three earned runs on five hits in the loss to the Astros on Friday.
Gonzalez wasn't blessed with a favorable matchup, pitching against a powerful Astros lineup. However, he just simply couldn't produce any swings-and-misses. He was throwing strikes, 47 of 73 pitches thrown, but only produced two strikeouts. He'll look to bounce back in his next start against the Angels next Thursday.
Marco Gonzales will toss the first game of the 2020 season for the Mariners, per manager Scott Servais.
Gonzales was the "ace" of the Mariners' staff last year, so this announcement comes as no surprise. Gonzales provides volume, which is important in an unpredictable season. His 10.5% K-BB rate was not impressive, but he keeps the ball in the yard, pitching to a 3.99 ERA last year.
Marco Gonzalez went 3 1/3 innings allowing four hits, two runs (one earned), two walks, with five strike outs Wednesday against the Padres.
Gonzalez has a 7.71 Cactus League ERA and all signs point to a regression from last years win total, ERA, and WHIP. Gonzalez does not miss many bats either, there are plenty of other late round starting pitchers to take a flyer on.
Marco Gonzales came out for his second start of the spring. He tossed three scoreless innings with no walks and two strikeouts while also allowing just one hit.
Gonzales is set to be Seattle’s ace for the year and his first outing did not go swimmingly as he failed to get out of the first inning. This is more like the Gonzales we are hoping to see this season.
