Cardinals P Marco Gonzales to miss next minor-league start


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(5/24/2015) 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
(5/14/2015) 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
(5/12/2015) 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."


Cardinals mull six-man rotation, prefer Garcia to Gonzales


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5/10/2015) The Cardinals are considering moving to a six-man rotation to help battle the loss of ace Adam Wainwright, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

"It’s not something we would rule out," general manager John Mozeliak said Saturday. "It’s something we’ve talked about, but we haven’t decided if that’s the best option for us. It’s something I think a lot about, and I know (manager) Mike (Matheny) and (pitching coach Derek Lilliquist) do too. It’s on the table."

With Michael Wacha and Carlos Martinez not being ticketed for 200-inning seasons, the team is considering whether to roll out a six-man rotation or to go with a five-man rotation and periodically skip starts of the two younger pitchers while giving others spot starts in their place. However, a six-man rotation could throw off the routines of Lance Lynn and John Lackey. If the team does opt for a five-man rotation, Jaime Garcia is the preferred long-term option over Marco Gonzales.

"If Jaime is good to go, we’ll try to find a spot in the rotation for him," Mozeliak said. "When he’s been healthy, Jaime has been a very good pitcher."

Garcia is set to begin a rehab assignment with Triple-A Memphis Sunday.


Cardinals' Marco Gonzales to make Triple-A start Saturday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5/5/2015) Cardinals pitcher Marco Gonzales (pectoral) is scheduled to start Saturday with Triple-A Memphis, MLB.com reports.

Cardinals pitcher Gonzales (pectoral muscle) is nearing return


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(4/30/2015) Cardinals general manager John Mozeliak indicated that injured pitcher Marco Gonzales is getting closer to making his return. Gonzales, who was placed on the minor-disabled list last week due to a left pectoral strain, has been cleared to play catch, and could be back on the mound soon. 

“I'm hopeful he's back throwing in a game, at the minor league level, somewhere around May 10th,” Mozeliak said, per KMOV.com. 

Gonzales had made three starts for Triple-A before the injury. He has a 4.50 ERA and 13 strikeouts in 16 innings pitched.


Cardinals prospect Marco Gonzales goes on minor-league DL


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com

Cardinals option P Marco Gonzales, 2B Ty Kelly to Memphis


by Dave Peters | CBSSports.com
(4/4/2015) The Cardinals have sent down pitcher Marco Gonzales and second baseman Ty Kelly to Memphis, reports the team.

Cardinals' Martinez edges out Gonzales for final spot in rotation


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/30/2015) Cardinals manager Mike Matheny announced Monday starting pitcher Carlos Martinez has beaten out Marco Gonzales for the final spot in the rotation. Gonzales will be in the rotation at Triple-A Memphis.

Martinez is 1-0 with a 3.94 ERA in five spring outings (four starts). He also struck out 16 batters and walked five in 16 innings.

Gonzales had a pretty solid spring, going 3-0 with a 1.04 ERA in five outings (four starts). Although, he did have some control issues, walking seven batters in 17 1/3 innings. He had nine strikeouts.

"Marco needs to stay on point because if anything happens between now and the beginning of our season, he's a guy that we have all the faith in the world and believe that he's going to be a good pitcher for a long time," Matheny said, per the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. "He had a disadvantage going into this from the beginning. And we knew that. For now, we believe that Carlos is our guy to start that fifth game for us."


Cardinals' Marco Gonzales allows one run vs. Mets Sunday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(3/29/2015) Cardinals pitcher Marco Gonzales gave up one earned run on three hits and three walks in 4 2/3 innings while striking out two in Sunday's 3-2 loss to the Mets.

Gonzales is making a statement in the competition for the fifth-starter role in St. Louis, and it's a battle he might win with Jaime Garcia dealing with arm fatigue. Gonzales has posted a 1.04 ERA in 17 1/3 spring innings but has also walked seven batters while striking out nine.

"I came like that into Spring Training, knowing that anything can happen," Gonzales said to MLB.com. "Obviously, I started in [high-A] Palm Beach [Fla.,] last year and ended up in the [Major League] bullpen in the playoffs. Really anything can happen, and I know there are always going to be changes for us. I'll be ready for whatever comes my way."
