Cardinals P Marco Gonzales fine with first rehab outing
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(7/14/15) Cardinals southpaw Marco Gonzales was happy with his first rehab appearance Frday for Class A Palm Beach.
Gonzales, who has been dealing with a shoulder impingement and a pectoral injury, pitched 2 2/3 shutout innings and allowed four hits. He walked none and fanned one. His focus was on fastball command.
"It was a good start for me and I think that moving forward I can mix in some other off-speed but my main focus was location of fastball," he told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. "... The most important thing is I wasn't trying to force it. I wasn't trying to throw hard and it was coming out low-90s, which is good. ... There was no pressure. There was no pain."
Gonzales has yet to pitch in the big leagues this season.

|by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com|
|(7/6/15) Cardinals pitcher Marco Gonzales will begin pitching in games on Friday, general manager John Mozeliak said, per MLB.com.
Gonzales has been sidelined with a pectoral injury and shoulder impingement since May.
Mozeliak said Gonzales would pitch for Class A Palm Beach and gradually increase his workload to 100 pitches by the end of the month.
Cardinals pitchers Marco Gonzales, Jordan Walden making progress
|by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer|
|(6/12/15) The Cardinals have gotten some positive news regarding a couple of their injured pitchers on Friday.
Left-hander Marco Gonzales , who has been bothered by a shoulder impingement, could begin making minor-league rehab appearances at the end of June.
"He was feeling great and appreciated his time here working with our medical staff, and now it's off to Florida, and I think he's excited about that," general manager JohnMozeliak said, per MLB.com.
Meanwhile, right-hander Jordan Walden began throwing earlier this week as he recovers from a right shoulder strain. Walden has been out of action since the beginning of May and is hoping to be back in July.
"Whatever they have me doing in there is pretty much my schedule," Walden said. "Hopefully [returning] before the All-Star break would be awesome. That's what I'm shooting for."
Cardinals' Marco Gonzales without timetable for Triple-A return
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(6/5/15) Cardinals pitcher Marco Gonzales remains without a timetable to return to action with Triple-A Memphis, MLB.com reports.
Gonzales, who has yet to resume throwing, was diagnosed with a shoulder impingement after undergoing an MRI last week. General manager John Mozeliak said on Thursday that the pitcher was "progressing as planned."
Cardinals SP Marco Gonzales will be reevaluated in 7-10 days
|by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com|
|(5/26/15) An MRI revealed no structural damage to the shoulder of Cardinals pitcher Marco Gonzales , reports MLB.com.
"I think it's very good news because this is something that can be managed," general manager John Mozeliak said. "There are probably a few things that he needs to start doing in his daily routine to get him through this, and we'll make sure that he understands that and is compliant with that."
Gonzales will be rest and soon begin a strengthening program. He will then be reevaluated in 7-10-days.
"As you start to get older and with the demands of pitching every day, there are certain things you are required to do," Mozeliak said. "I think some of that was not being done, and now he will understand that and be compliant moving forward."
|2014 summary: One year after they selected him in the first round of the amateur draft, Marco Gonzales stormed through the Cardinals' minor-league system in 2014, beginning at high Class A before making his major-league debut in late June, sticking around for a few starts, and then returning as a September callup. He even made six postseason appearances, working in relief.|
Playing time status: Gonzales split his 10 regular-season appearances evenly between the rotation and the bullpen, but he was more effective in the latter role, probably because his stellar command -- his calling card in the minors -- abandoned him in the majors. The left-hander has a strong enough secondary arsenal that the Cardinals will want him to start eventually, but with Carlos Martinez poised to replace Shelby Miller in the starting rotation, the only place he can do that right now is the minors.
2015 outlook: It's for the best, really. As effective as Gonzales was at every minor-league stop, compiling a 2.43 ERA, 1.12 WHIP and 8.6 strikeouts per nine innings in 21 starts divided almost evenly between the three, it's pretty clear he wasn't ready for the majors -- and in fact his own worst enemy with the out-of-character walk rate. The 23-year-old will probably be first in line should something go wrong and has enough upside to keep owners in all leagues on alert, but you can pass him over on Draft Day.
