|Phillies announce September roster moves |
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
(9/1/14) The Phillies announced their September callups on Monday.
Before announcing the moves, Philadelphia transferred pitcher Cliff Lee to the 60-day DL to create room on the 40-man roster. The team recalled infielder Cesar Hernandez, catcher Cameron Rupp and right-handed pitchers Luis Garcia and Miguel Alfredo Gonzalez from Triple-A Lehigh Valley. Additionally, the team purchased the contracts of infielder Maikel Franco and outfielder Tony Gwynn Jr.. Right-hander Mike Adams was also activated off the disabled list.
|Miguel Alfredo Gonzalez likely to get first taste of the majors |
|by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com|
(8/29/14) Phillies pitcher Miguel Alfredo Gonzalez has thrived since making the switch to the bullpen at Triple-A Lehigh Valley, and the Philadelphia Inquirer reports Friday is "almost a lock" to join the team when rosters expand next week.
Gonzalez has appeared in 11 games out of the bullpen at Triple-A, posting a 1.72 ERA with 17 strikeouts and eight walks in 15 2/3 innings. The 27-year-old struggled mightily at Class A Clearwater earlier in the season, before the switch to the bullpen was made, after a disappointing run in spring training.
"He wasn't sharp, he wasn't strong in spring training," manager Ryne Sandberg said. "So to see what he's doing now, see what that looks like, anxious to see that if he's one of the guys. He should be one of the guys."

|Rehab assignment awaits Miguel Alfredo Gonzalez |
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
(6/20/14) Right-hander Miguel Alfredo Gonzalez is set for a rehab stint with Class A Clearwater, per the Philadelphia Inquirer. He has yet to pitch for the Phillies this season.
He had been diagnosed with what was described as a "dead arm."
|Miguel Alfredo Gonzalez has no structural damage |
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
(5/28/14) An MRI on the arm of Phillies pitcher Miguel Alfredo Gonzalez revealed no structural damage, MLB.com reports.
Gonzalez said that he was going through a "dead arm" phase after his last rehab start but said he wasn't dealing with any pain. He'll continue his throwing program Thursday.
|Though recent international signees like Yoenis Cespedes and Hyun-Jin Ryu, who had similarly mysterious backgrounds, should give Fantasy owners some measure of confidence in Miguel Alfredo Gonzalez (as should the Phillies' willingness to give him $12 million over three years), the fact of the matter is he's still an unknown quantity after coming over from Cuba. And at age 27, he's destined to either sink or swim here in the States. He'll get the requisite time to acclimate to a new league and shake off the rust -- he hasn't pitched much since 2011 because of circumstances related to his defection as well as surgery to remove bone chips from his elbow -- but by midseason, we should have a good idea what kind of pitcher he'll be. And it may not be one so worthy of a long-term investment. Or it may. Part of the difficulty in assessing him is that no one really knows how good his stuff is. Scouting reports have clocked his fastball at anywhere from 89 to 97 mph. Gonzalez is talented enough and experienced enough to have a role in the majors, but whether it's at the top of the rotation, the bottom of the rotation or the bullpen remains to be seen. He's draftable in mixed leagues for the likelihood he wins a rotation spot, but long-term, he's on shaky ground.
