Cardinals 'leaning toward' starting Marco Gonzalez Thursday


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/2/2014) The Cardinals are leaning toward starting Marco Gonzalez Thursday against the Brewers, according to FOXSportsMidwest.com Tuesday.

The report indicates that nothing is official regarding Thursday's start, but the team is believed to be considering Gonzalez over Justin Masterson. Gonzalez tossed six strong innings in his last start Saturday, allowing just one run on three hits.  


Cardinals mulling SP options for Thursday's game


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(8/31/2014) Cardinals manager Mike Matheny didn't commit to Justin Masterson making his next start Thursday against the Brewers. In fact, he hinted Marco Gonzales and Tyler Lyons could be the leading candidates to start Thursday, per MLB.com.

"(Marco is) a possibility. Tyler (is) a possibility. Justin's a possibility. We'll see," Matheny said. "We've talked a lot about this stuff. It just hasn't been talked about with everybody else, and this isn't the time or place to start making those statements. We just want to put the guy out there that's going to give us the best chance to win. It's going to be how it matches up with other teams and how they look. We'll be willing to make that statement soon, just not right now."

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Marco Gonzalez picks up first career win Saturday


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(8/31/2014) Cardinals pitcher Marco Gonzalez pitched well and received more than enough run support, earning his first career win Saturday night against the Cubs in Game 2 of a doubleheader. He allowed one run on three hits and two walks while striking out five over six innings of a 13-2 victory. He will likely be sent back down to Triple-A Memphis after the start.

Marco Gonzalez set for spot start Saturday


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(8/29/2014) The Cardinals will recall pitcher Marco Gonzalez to start half of Saturday's doubleheader against the Cubs, the team announced Friday.

Gonzalez has made just three starts this season, allowing 11 runs in 14 innings of work. He will likely be recalled as the 26th man and then sent back to the minors following the game. 


Tyler Lyons up, Marco Gonzales down for Cardinals


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(7/7/2014) The Cardinals have recalled Tyler Lyons from Triple-A Memphis and sent down fellow left-hander Marco Gonzales to the same team.

Lyons is expected to take the place of Gonzales in the rotation, starting with Friday in Milwaukee, though that announcement has not been made. Gonzales could not make it past five innings in any of his three starts and yielded nine runs in 14 innings. Lyons, however, has struggled with the Redbirds, giving up 43 hits in 35 1/3 innings and compiling a 5.35 ERA.


Marco Gonzales lasts just 4 2/3 innings during loss Sunday


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(7/6/2014) Cardinals starting pitcher Marco Gonzales couldn't make it out of the fifth inning during Sunday's 8-4 loss against the Marlins due to control problems. He allowed just one run in 4 2/3 innings, but Gonzales was tagged for seven hits and five walks.

Gonzales (0-2) got off to a rough start by allowing a pair of singles to begin the game. He eventually gave up a two-out RBI single to Casey McGehee in the first inning. 

He was much better in the second inning, striking out two in a 1-2-3 frame. Though, he ran into more trouble in the third inning, as he loaded the bases before escaping the jam. 

Gonzales put two more runners on base in the fourth inning and loaded the bases in the fifth before being lifted for Seth Maness, who ended the threat before Miami could plate any more runs. 

It was the first time in three starts Gonzales allowed less than five runs. Though, he lasted less than five innings for the second straight start. He's also walked nine batters in his last two starts (nine innings).

Gonzales, who struck out five, is slated to make his next start Friday at Milwaukee.


Marco Gonzales hit hard in first loss


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(7/2/2014) Cardinals pitcher Marco Gonzales struggled yet again Tuesday, in a 5-0 loss to the Giants.

Gonzales was tagged for five more runs Tuesday, after he gave up five runs in his major-league debut last week. He gave up his five runs on seven hits and four walks in 4 1/3 innings, while striking out two batters on 84 pitches.

Gonzales fell to 0-1 through two starts, while his ERA rose to 9.64. He has been pressed into duty due to injury, and his next start is set for Sunday against the Marlins. 


Ugly fourth inning mars Marco Gonzales' debut


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(6/25/2014) Cardinals pitcher Marco Gonzales' major-league debut didn't go as well as hoped Wednesday, as he settled for a no-decision in a 9-6 win over the Cardinals.

Gonzales cruised through the first three innings of his career, but stumbled badly in the fourth, as the Rockies jumped on him for five runs in the frame. He ended up allowing five runs on seven hits and a pair of walks, while striking out three batters on 82 pitches over five innings.

Gonzales was promoted straight from Double-A Springfield due to injuries in the rotation, and could see a few more starts before he is sent down. His next turn in the rotation is set for Tuesday in San Francisco.  


Marco Gonzales debuts against hometown team


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(6/25/2014) When Cardinals starter Marco Gonzales makes his major-league debut Wednesday at Colorado, he'll be facing the team he grew up rooting for. Gonzales even pitched at Coors Field a few times as a prep star.

He's anticipating a big turnout of family and friends from Fort Collins, 60 miles north of Denver.

"It's bizarre being here, sitting here in this dugout," Gonzales said, per the Boston Herald. "I'm hoping that I've turned some Fort Collins natives into Cardinal fans overnight. People are pretty upset they have to root against the Rockies."

Cardinals manager Mike Matheny said Gonzales' familiarity with Coors Field should help.

"A lot of guys come in here (to Colorado) not knowing what to expect," Matheny said. "But this is something he grew up with."


Marco Gonzales to make major-league debut Wednesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(6/23/2014) The Cardinals announced Monday that pitcher Marco Gonzales will be called up to start Wednesday's game against the Rockies in what will be his major-league debut.

The Cardinals had a rotation spot to fill after two starters went to the disabled list, and Gonzales is the one that gets the call initially. Drafted 19th overall in the 2013 MLB Draft, Gonzales has made 13 starts between high Class A Palm Beach and Double-A Springfield this season, going 5-4 with a 1.89 ERA, 1.11 WHIP and 78:18 K:BB ratio in 76 1/3 innings.

by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(3/9/2014) Cardinals pitcher Marco Gonzales has some tightness in his forearm, according to the MLB.com.

Gonzales has been assigned to minor-league camp, and will work out the issue there. Gonzales was the club's first round pick in last year's draft.
