Orioles' Gonzalez happy with outing, picks up second spring win


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/21/2015) Orioles starting pitcher Miguel Gonzalez allowed two runs on six hits and no walks in 3 2/3 innings during Saturday's 5-3 spring win against the Twins. Gonzalez (2-1) struck out four and threw 80 pitches.

"I felt great," he said, per MASNsports.com. "I executed my pitches. That's been an issue with my splitty. I definitely was happy with it this time. My fastball command was very good. Caleb (Joseph) did a great job and made some nice plays. Overall, I know I didn't go five innings, but I got my work in and that's what really matters."

Gonzalez has a 4.26 ERA through four spring starts.


Tigers option Valdez, VerHagen, Machado, Fields, Bernard to minors


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(3/20/2015) The Tigers optioned Jose Valdez, Drew VerHagen, Dixon Machado and Daniel Fields to Triple-A Toledo and Wynton Bernard to Double-A Erie, according to MLive.com. The team also reassigned Tim Melville, Austin Green and Miguel Gonzalez to minor-league camp.

Orioles P Miguel Gonzalez gives up two earned runs in victory


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(3/16/2015) After three scoreless and hitless innings, Orioles pitcher Miguel Gonzalez gave up two earned runs and four hits in four innings during Monday's 16-4 rout over the Phillies. 

Gonzalez struck out four batters and walked none. His ERA for the spring now sits at 4.00. 

The Orioles' bats were on fire, as Cole Hamels gave up five earned runs on six hits. 

"They faced a really good pitcher. Obviously, it wasn't his day today," Gonzalez said. "That's the type of guys we have in our clubhouse. They're going to get things done. I was really happy and fortunate to be a part of it."


Orioles' Miguel Gonzalez settles down after rocky first inning


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/11/2015) Orioles starting pitcher Miguel Gonzalez took the hill for the second time this spring Wednesday against the Blue Jays. He allowed two runs on three hits, while striking out one in three innings.

Gonzalez got off to a rocky start, allowing the first two batters to reach base via singles. The Blue Jays would score twice in the first inning before Gonzalez settled down to retire the final seven batters he faced.

"Obviously, the first inning I was up," Gonzalez said, per MASNsports.com. "Just falling, falling early, rushing a little bit. I had time to work on it on my side and I'll just go from there.

"Hopefully, next time it will be a little better. It wasn't that bad. A couple of hits in the first inning, got some runs. I was falling behind a couple of guys, just didn't give in. Made some good pitches when I needed to."

Gonzalez is competing for a spot in the rotation. Chris Tillman, Wei-Yin Chen and Bud Norris are expected to be in the rotation, with Gonzalez, Kevin Gausman and Ubaldo Jimenez competing for the final two spots.

"The last few years has been like that," Gonzalez said. "Everyone is getting the opportunity to go out there and do their job. All we've got to do is go out there and do as best as possible. Just be yourself every time you're out there."


Orioles' Showalter indicates Gonzalez might be ready for 200 innings


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/2/2015) Orioles manager Buck Showalter said starting pitcher Miguel Gonzalez is in good shape at the start of spring training, per MASNsports.com.

"I don't know if you all tapped on him, but he's like a rock," Showalter said. "He's got a goal of pitching 200 innings this year because that's been the one kind of bugaboo on him. Miggy's not the type of guy to talk about this, but his whole offseason he spent a lot of time with (vice president of baseball operations) Brady (Anderson). I hit him the other day and it was like hitting a rock. His body fat is actually down and his weight's up.

"The wear and tear, he's always had a couple spots where he's needed a DL period or miss a start. He's very upfront. If you know Miggy's personality, it's not like he's shirking a responsibility. If we can stay away from that, he could go to another level physically. He's done everything he can to be there for us every fifth day.

"He was pretty good last year, but the one thing he's missing is that durability."

Orioles shuffle starting rotation


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(9/22/2014) The Orioles will start right-hander Ubaldo Jimenez at the Yankees on Tuesday, allowing them to stick to their plan of giving each of their starting pitchers an extra day of rest heading into the postseason.

"There's a fine line between not having enough rest and having too much rest, so we're trying to have every guy that pitches get one extra day before the start," manager Buck Showalter told the Baltimore Sun. “We're going to try to give everybody, so you're not too far away from the ball but you get a little extra rest. They all seem to respond well to that."

While left-hander Wei-Yin Chen will start Monday at the Yankees, right-hander Chris Tillman won't start again until Friday at Toronto. Miguel Gonzalez will start the team's final game Sunday at Toronto.

As of now, Bud Norris and Kevin Gausman are scheduled to start Wednesday's and Thursday's games at the Yankees, but that could change. Jimenez could end up making a second start before season's end.
