Marco Gonzales took the loss Thursday against the Twins, allowing seven runs (all earned) on nine hits over 4.1 innings pitched with six strikeouts and two walks.
It has been a rough start to the season for Gonzales after allowing five runs against the San Francisco Giants in his first start of the season. After throwing two shutout innings, Minnesota scored four runs off of Gonzales in the third inning which included a three-run home run from Mitch Garver. He surrendered another home run to Byron Buxton in the fifth inning. Gonzales has had trouble with his control in these first two starts. He will look to bounce back in his next scheduled start on April 15 against Baltimore.
Seattle starting pitcher Marco Gonzales went six innings in the Mariners extra innings Opening Day win, allowing five runs (all earned) on eight hits with two strikeouts and three walks.
It was not a pretty start to the season for Gonzales, allowing three solo home runs including two in the second inning to Evan Longoria and Buster Posey. Gonzales just did not seem to have his control all game, constantly falling behind in counts which the Giants took advantage of. The Mariners were able to plate six runs in the eighth inning, saving Gonzales from the loss. He will look to rebound in his next start.
Seattle Mariners starting pitcher Marco Gonzales threw two innings Sunday against the Padres, allowing one (unearned) run on two hits with one walk.
The run was scored on a throwing error by second baseman Dylan Moore. Gonzales was named the opening day starter for the third straight season, coming off an impressive 2020 campaign where the Gonzaga product registered a 3.10 ERA. He is not going to be a heavy strikeout pitcher, but will continue to work quickly and efficiently.
Marco Gonzales was named the Mariners' Opening Day starter for the third consecutive season by manager Scott Servais.
There's no surprise here as the lefty Gonzales is coming off a solid 2020 campaign. He registered a 3.10 ERA, 0.95 WHIP and 64:7 K/BB ratio over 69 2/3 innings last year. "Marco’s established himself. He’s the leader of our pitching staff" Servais said. Gonzales is a solid SP3 in standard fantasy leagues this season.
Marco Gonzales was handed a no-decision on Sunday when he allowed two runs on six hits with five strikeouts and one walk across five innings in the Mariners 6-2 loss to the A's.
Gonzales wasn't his usual efficient self as it took him 97 pitches--64 strikes--to get through five innings of work. The southpaw still put together an excellent season for the rebuilding Mariners going 7-2 with a 3.10 ERA, 0.95 WHIP, and a 64:7 K/BB ratio across 69 2/3 innings (11 starts). He'll be worth of a mid round pick in fantasy drafts next season as he looks to take another step forward.
