Orioles SP Miguel Gonzalez continues to struggle in loss Tuesday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(8/26/2015) Orioles starter Miguel Gonzalez failed to pick up a win for the sixth straight start, as the fell to 9-10 with a loss on Tuesday against the Royals. Gonzalez allowed three runs on six hits over 4 1/3 innings in the 3-2 defeat.

Gonzalez needed 92 pitches to get through his outing, as his ERA rose to 4.78. He allowed a solo home run to Kendrys Morales in the second inning, before allowing two more runs to score in the third. Gonzalez was able to retire the first batter in the fifth, but manager Ned Yost had apparently seen enough as he went out to make the switch.

Gonzalez has had a rough month of August, going 0-3 with a 6.84 ERA in five starts this month.


Orioles SP Miguel Gonzalez clobbered again in loss to Twins


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(8/21/2015) If Miguel Gonzalez wants to maintain his spot in the rotation for the Orioles, he's going about it the wrong way.

Giving up seven runs on eight hits in five innings is definitely not a recipe for job security. But that's what he did Thursday against Minnesota in taking his third consecutive defeat. He walked two and struck out five.

Gonzalez barely survived a five-run second in which he allowed run-scoring hits to Kurt Suzuki, Eduardo Escobar and Brian Dozier. A two-run homer by Miguel Sano in the fifth put the unwanted cherry on top.

The right-hander has now surrendered 22 runs over his last 26 innings. His ERA has peaked at 4.73.


Orioles P Miguel Gonzalez survives homers, walks in no-decision


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(8/15/2015) Orioles right-hander Miguel Gonzalez might have done more than just pitch seven strong innings Saturday night against Oakland. He might have saved his spot in the rotation.

Gonzalez bounced back from a series of poor efforts by limiting the Athletics to three runs on six hits. He walked three and whiffed five.

It didn't start out promising. Gonzalez allowed a run in the first and solo homers to Sam Fuld and Josh Reddick in the third. He walked the bases loaded in the fifth, but induced Billy Butler to hit into a double play. He retired the last eight batters he faced.

Gonzalez had allowed 12 runs on 22 hits in his previous 13 1/3 innings pitched to raise his ERA to 4.45, its highest point of the season.


Orioles struggling SP Miguel Gonzalez pounded again Sunday


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(8/9/2015) Concerns that Orioles right-hander Miguel Gonzalez is not long for the rotation were heightened Sunday after another terrible performance.

Gonzalez gave up four runs on seven hits in 4 2/3 innings against the host Angels. He walked two and struck out six and was spared defeat when his team rebounded from the 4-2 deficit he provided.

Homers 19 and 20 on the year against Gonzalez proved damaging. He allowed a first inning solo blast to Kole Calhoun and three-run job in the third to David Murphy.

Gonzalez remains 9-8, but has surrendered 12 runs in his last 13 innings and has managed just one quality start in his last six outings.


Orioles' Chris Tillman has start pushed to Tuesday


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(8/8/2015) The Orioles pushed pitcher Chris Tillman's start back two days from Sunday to Tuesday.

Tillman sprained his left ankle in a start on July 29 and hasn't pitched since. He'll get an extra two days of rest as the Orioles shuffle their rotation. 

Miguel Gonzalez will start on Sunday, per MASN

Wei-Yin Chen will start Monday. Kevin Gausman will start Wednesday, per the Baltimore Sun.


Orioles shuffle rotation plans for weekend series vs. Angels


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Kevin Gausman will start the series opener on Friday and will be followed by Ubaldo Jimenez. Sunday's starter has not been announced, but it could be Tillman, who was originally scheduled to pitch Saturday. He is sidelined due to an ankle injury. 

If Tillman can't pitch Sunday, then it could be Miguel Gonzalez in the series finale.


Orioles SP Miguel Gonzalez receives loss in Tuesday's start


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(8/5/2015) Orioles pitcher Miguel Gonzalez did not pitch horribly, but he failed to produce a quality start during Tuesday's 5-0 loss to the A's.

Gonzalez allowed three runs on five hits over 5 1/3 innings. He also struck out five and walked three. He is now 9-8 with a 4.32 ERA.

Gonzalez has lost his last two starts and has one quality start over his last five outings.


Orioles SP Miguel Gonzalez gets battered by Tigers on Thursday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(7/30/2015) Orioles right-hander Miguel Gonzalez got roughed up by the Tigers on Thursday night. Gonzalez lasted just 3 1/3 innings, allowing five runs on 10 hits. He threw 66 pitches, with 42 going for strikes in the 9-8 loss.

Gonzalez (9-7, 4.28 ERA) got into an early jam when he allowed two runs to score in the first inning. He put up zeroes in the second and third innings, but he gave up another three runs in the fourth before being pulled from the game.

Gonzalez has had a couple of bad starts in July, but he also had some good ones too. Overall, he went 3-2 with a 5.00 ERA in five starts this month.


Orioles SP Miguel Gonzalez sticks around in Saturday win


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(7/25/2015) That Orioles starter Miguel Gonzalez performed well Saturday is not particularly surprising. That he lasted well into the eighth inning certain is.

Gonzalez managed his longest outing since May 29 by going 7 2/3 innings to beat host Tampa Bay. He allowed just one run on five hits with no walks and five strikeouts. He had a shutout going until ninth hitter Curt Casali took him deep with one out in the eighth.

The right-hander, who has been inconsistent most of the season, has managed two straight strong efforts. He has given up three runs in his last 12 2/3 innings pitched to shrink his ERA to 3.99.

"I think there's times that you are going to have your ups and downs and you just have to go out there and minimize it," Gonzalez said, per MLB.com. "We've pitched well here, attacking guys and staying ahead -- that's what helped me get to the eighth inning."


Orioles SP Miguel Gonzalez earns win over Tigers on Sunday


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(7/19/2015) Orioles pitcher Miguel Gonzalez pitched well enough to earn his eighth win of the season during Sunday's 9-3 win over the Tigers.

Gonzalez allowed two runs on six hits over five innings of work. He also struck out four and walked two. He is now 8-6 with a 4.21 ERA.

Gonzalez has now won two of his last three starts. He has not pitched more than six innings in each of his last six starts.


Orioles SP Miguel Gonzalez miserable in Saturday defeat


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(7/11/2015) The inconsistency that has marked the season for Orioles starter Miguel Gonzalez continued to plague him Saturday against Washington.

Gonzalez, who was coming off a strong performance, turned in a weak one in falling to the Nationals, lowering his record to 7-6 and raising his ERA to 4.24. He allowed six runs on nine hits in just five innings with two walks and four strikeouts.

He was OK until the sixth, when he gave up a leadoff homer to Bryce Harper, followed by two singles and a three-run jack by Danny Espinosa.

Gonzalez has yielded 17 runs in his last 20 1/3 innings pitched.

by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer

Gonzalez allowed just four hits and one run, while striking out three. Over 96 pitches, he walked just one batter. The starter has been hit or miss over his last six starts, but Sunday he was on in improving to 7-5 on the season. 

It's only the third time in his last 10 starts that he has not allowed a home run, which helped lower his ERA to 3.87. 


Phillies' Miguel Gonzalez could be out for year


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(7/3/2015) Phillies pitcher Miguel Gonzalez has been out since April 8 with right shoulder inflammation. 

Gonzalez suffered a setback, and GM Ruben Amaro said it's possible Gonzalez won't pitch this season. 

"He's going back through kind of a strengthening program," Amaro said, per the News Journal. "He came out and threw kind of a simulated game about a week ago, and he didn't feel like he had enough velocity to compete and he just feels like he needs more strengthening. Whether he's going to get there, who knows? ... He just hasn't been healthy enough."
