Cardinals' Marco Gonzalez optioned to Triple-A


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(9/2/2015) The Cardinals have optioned left-hander Marco Gonzales back to Triple-A Memphis on Wednesday. Gonzales started for the Cardinals on Tuesday, giving up four runs in just 2 2/3 innings. It's likely he'll be back up with the team before the end of the season.

Cardinals SP Marco Gonzales clobbered in first 2015 outing


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(9/2/2015) The good news for Cardinals starter Marco Gonzales was that he did not lose Tuesday night against Washington. The bad news was everything else.

Gonzales was mashed in his first start of the season to the tune of four runs on seven hits in 2 2/3 innings. He walked one and whiffed one.

He allowed only a walk and single in the first two innings, then the proverbial roof caved in. Two singles and an Anthony Rendon double scored two runs in the third and Ryan Zimmerman put the cherry on top with a tater two batters later. Two hits after that and he was out of the game.

Gonzales opens the season with a 13.50 ERA.


Cardinals recall Marco Gonzales, two others on Tuesday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(9/1/2015) The Cardinals have officially recalled left-hander Marco Gonzales from Triple-A Memphis. Gonzales will start Tuesday's game against the Nationals, making his season debut for the Cards.

In 2014, the rookie pitcher went 4-2 with a 4.15 ERA in 10 appearances (five starts). He's dealt with injuries this season, and posted a 4.42 ERA in 17 starts across three levels of the Cardinals' minor league system in 2015.

Joining Gonzales from Memphis are right-hander Mitch Harris and catcher Cody Stanley


Cardinals' Carlos Martinez (back) won't start on Tuesday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(8/31/2015) Cardinals right-hander Carlos Martinez will not make his next scheduled start on Tuesday. Martinez is dealing with a back issue that will cause him to be skipped this time through the rotation.

The Cardinals have not said when Martinez is expected to take the mound next. Marco Gonzales will replace him for Tuesday's matchup with the Nationals, reports MLB.com.


Cardinals P Marco Gonzales fine with first rehab outing


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(7/14/2015) Cardinals southpaw Marco Gonzales was happy with his first rehab appearance Frday for Class A Palm Beach.

Gonzales, who has been dealing with a shoulder impingement and a pectoral injury, pitched 2 2/3 shutout innings and allowed four hits. He walked none and fanned one. His focus was on fastball command.

"It was a good start for me and I think that moving forward I can mix in some other off-speed but my main focus was location of fastball," he told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. "... The most important thing is I wasn't trying to force it. I wasn't trying to throw hard and it was coming out low-90s, which is good. ... There was no pressure. There was no pain."

Gonzales has yet to pitch in the big leagues this season.


Cardinals' Marco Gonzales to start rehab assignment on Friday


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(7/6/2015) Cardinals pitcher Marco Gonzales will begin pitching in games on Friday, general manager John Mozeliak said, per MLB.com

Cardinals pitchers Marco Gonzales, Jordan Walden making progress


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(6/12/2015) The Cardinals have gotten some positive news regarding a couple of their injured pitchers on Friday. 

Left-hander Marco Gonzales , who has been bothered by a shoulder impingement, could begin making minor-league rehab appearances at the end of June.

"He was feeling great and appreciated his time here working with our medical staff, and now it's off to Florida, and I think he's excited about that," general manager JohnMozeliak said, per MLB.com.

Meanwhile, right-hander Jordan Walden began throwing earlier this week as he recovers from a right shoulder strain. Walden has been out of action since the beginning of May and is hoping to be back in July.

"Whatever they have me doing in there is pretty much my schedule," Walden said. "Hopefully [returning] before the All-Star break would be awesome. That's what I'm shooting for."

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(6/5/2015) Cardinals pitcher Marco Gonzales remains without a timetable to return to action with Triple-A Memphis, MLB.com reports.

Cardinals SP Marco Gonzales will be reevaluated in 7-10 days


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(5/26/2015) An MRI revealed no structural damage to the shoulder of Cardinals pitcher Marco Gonzales , reports MLB.com.

"I think it's very good news because this is something that can be managed," general manager John Mozeliak said. "There are probably a few things that he needs to start doing in his daily routine to get him through this, and we'll make sure that he understands that and is compliant with that."

Gonzales will be rest and soon begin a strengthening program. He will then be reevaluated in 7-10-days.

"As you start to get older and with the demands of pitching every day, there are certain things you are required to do," Mozeliak said. "I think some of that was not being done, and now he will understand that and be compliant moving forward."


Cards' Mozeliak: We will know more about Gonzales' status Tuesday


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(5/26/2015) Cardinals starting pitcher prospect Marco Gonzales will undergo medical tests Tuesday to determine what is the cause of the recurring soreness in and around his left shoulder, according to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.

"We’ll know a lot more on Marco (on Tuesday)," Cardinals general manager John Mozeliak said. "At that point we’ll make a decision on what that next step will look like. … Any time you have a pitcher who is feeling discomfort especially in the shoulder or elbow areas it always sends up a flag so hopefully we’ll get good news, but we’ll see."

The highly touted prospect is on the disabled list in the minors for the second time this season with pain in his biceps/shoulder area. He is 0-1 with a 6.35 ERA in six starts for Triple-A Memphis.


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.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer

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.

by Dave Peters | CBSSports.com

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.

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."

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

"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."
