Cardinals SP Marco Gonzales will be reevaluated in 7-10 days
|by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com|
|(5:19 pm ET) 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."
Cards' Mozeliak: We will know more about Gonzales' status Tuesday
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(9:21 am ET) Cardinals starting pitcher prospect Marco Gonzales will undergo medical tests Tuesday to determine what is the cause of the recurring soreness in and around his left shoulder, according to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.
"We’ll know a lot more on Marco (on Tuesday)," Cardinals general manager John Mozeliak said. "At that point we’ll make a decision on what that next step will look like. … Any time you have a pitcher who is feeling discomfort especially in the shoulder or elbow areas it always sends up a flag so hopefully we’ll get good news, but we’ll see."
The highly touted prospect is on the disabled list in the minors for the second time this season with pain in his biceps/shoulder area. He is 0-1 with a 6.35 ERA in six starts for Triple-A Memphis.
Cardinals P Marco Gonzales to miss next minor-league start
|by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com|
|(5/24/15) Cardinals pitcher Marco Gonzales , who has a left pectoral injury, will miss his next scheduled start with Triple-A Memphis, according to MLB.com.
Gonzales will have his left pectoral muscle examined after experiencing tightness in it.
The issue popped up while he was doing flat work on Saturday.
Lefty Marco Gonzales mashed in Thursday rehab outing
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(5/14/15) Marco Gonzales might need to perform far better in his rehab stint for Triple-A Memphis than he did Thursday to return to the Cardinals.
Gonzales, who is battling back from a shoulder injury, allowed seven runs on seven hits, including three home runs, in a battering by Colorado Springs, per the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.
The left-hander has been used as both a starter and reliever for St. Louis this season. Control has certainly been an issue - he has 21 walks in 34 2/3 innings.
Cardinals' Garcia, Gonzales 'evenly matched' in rehab schedule
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(5/12/15) Cardinals general manager John Mozeliak said Monday that pitchers Jaime Garcia (shoulder) and Marco Gonzales (shoulder) are "evenly matched" when asked which would be ready to return to major-league action first, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.
"One is coming from a higher volume (of pitches) in Garcia’s case, but he hasn’t had a lot of game opportunities. So we have to be patient with that," Mozeliak said. "In Marco’s case, he just has to get his volume back up. I would expect that to (happen) relatively quickly. But we also want to be smart about it. I don’t see either of them helping us out in (Tyler) Lyons’ next start. At the minimum this gives both of those guys one more start and I could envision a couple more before we’re really at that comfort level."
The Cardinals plan to use one or both of the pitchers to help fill the workload needed after the season-ending injury to Adam Wainwright. If either or both struggle or deal with continued health issues, the Cardinals could look outside the organization for pitching help.
"As long as our starters are giving us a chance, we’re going to try to do this internally," Mozeliak said. "If something makes sense for us to pursue, we certainly will. We’re not naïve. You lose Adam Wainwright and that’s 230 innings gone. … We understand we have to backfill. If that can come from Marco Gonzales and Jaime Garcia, then great. If not, we have work to do."
|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.
