|Rehab assignment awaits Miguel Alfredo Gonzalez |
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|

|Arm troubles shut Miguel Alfredo Gonzalez down |
|by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com|
(5/27/14) Phillies starter Miguel Alfredo Gonzalez continues to have trouble staying healthy, as he was shut down in recent days with "dead arm" at Class A Clearwater.
Gonzalez, who has made just three starts since joining the Phillies, was placed on the disabled list at Clearwater with shoulder soreness. He was examined by Phillies physicians Tuesday, but the results of that are not yet known.
"Hopefully," general manager Ruben Amaro told the Philadelphia Inquirer Tuesday, "it's nothing serious."
|Miguel Alfredo Gonzalez lasts five innings in first professional start |
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
(5/16/14) Phillies starting pitcher Miguel Alfredo Gonzalez, who is working his way back from a shoulder injury, began a minor-league rehab assignment Thursday night with Class A Clearwater.
Gonzalez went five innings, yielding three runs on six hits in a no-decision. He struck out one and walked two in his first professional start of his career.
|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.
