by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(3/24/2015) The Rangers optioned shortstop Hanser Alberto and re-assigned pitchers Alex Gonzalez and Ross Wolf to minor-league camp Tuesday.

Alberto went 7 for 30 with two steals in 13 games this spring. Gonzalez, who was thought to be in the mix for a rotation spot, posted a 3.95 ERA and 15:6 K:BB ratio in 13 2/3 innings. Wolf allowed five earned runs in 8 2/3 innings.


Rangers pitcher Alex Gonzalez throws five innings in outing Monday


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(3/24/2015) Rangers pitcher Alex Gonzalez went five innings Monday against the Reds, adding six strikeouts while allowing two runs on four hits. Gonzalez, who threw 82 pitches, got into trouble in the third after issuing a consecutive walks. 

"[Pitching coach Mike] Maddux was telling me, 'You're a ground-ball pitcher. Get the ground ball in the first two pitches. Not with a full-count pitch,'" Gonzalez said.

He then fell behind 3-0 against Joey Votto, but struck him out on a slider.

"[Catcher Robinson] Chirinos just said, 'Throw the ball right at me,'" Gonzalez said to MLB.com. "So I did and I got strike one, strike two. Then he said, 'Throw a slider over the plate,' and we got him."


Alex Gonzalez gets another shot for Rangers' rotation


by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(3/22/2015) Rangers starting pitcher Alex Gonzalez has another shot to earn his way into the rotation Monday, per MLB.com, when the highly touted prospect will face the Reds.

Gonzalez, the Rangers' fifth-ranked prospect, has an outside shot for one of two spots up in the air, but thus far, has a 4.15 ERA this spring. He went 12-6 at Class A and Double-A last season.

"I've learned to make quick adjustments as the game goes," Gonzalez said. "I have had a couple of outings where I have done OK. I'm trying to take the positives out of it and prepare me for wherever I am."


Alex Gonzalez still in the running for spot in Rangers' rotation


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/17/2015) Rangers starting pitcher prospect Alex Gonzalez survived another round of cuts Tuesday, leaving him in the running for a spot in the team's rotation, per MLB.com.

"We are in a situation where are looking at two slots," manager Jeff Banister said. "We are not taking anybody out of the mix who is in the mix."

Gonzalez, however, is left to compete against a long list of candidates. They include Ross Detwiler, Nick Tepesch, Nick Martinez, Ross Ohlendorf, Anthony Ranaudo, Lisalverto Bonilla and Anthony Bass.

Gonzalez, who hasn't pitched above Double-A, is 1-0 with a 4.15 ERA through three spring outings (one start). He has allowed four runs on seven hits and four walks, while striking out nine in 8 2/3 innings.

"He has pitched effectively," Banister said. "He is calm and composed and has been able to get all his pitches in play. This is going to be a nice effective pitcher at the major-league level."


Rangers pitcher Alex Gonzalez battles through first spring start


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(3/9/2015) Rangers pitcher Alex Gonzalez may be getting the chance to join the starting rotation with the pending news of Yu Darvish, reports the Dallas Morning News.

Gonzalez made his first start of spring training Monday and battled through three innings with 58 pitches. Manager Jeff Bannister liked how Gonzalez battled through his three scoreless innings.

"He showed poise and presence on the mound," Banister said. "I'd heard about that and that's what I saw. That third inning, it started out as a little bit of a challenge, but, all in all, it turned out to be a good day."

Gonzalez had a 50-pitch limit, but was trying to get through the start in 30.

"Coming out of the bullpen, I told [catcher Chris] Gimenez, 'Let's get this day done in 30 pitches'," Gonzalez said. "I jinxed myself. I wish I wouldn’t have thrown so many pitches early on, but I’m happy they gave me those extra six pitches to get out of my own inning."

He recorded three strikeouts and three walks, allowing two hits on the day.


Report: Rangers not interested in dealing prospect Gonzalez for Gattis


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(12/9/2014) While the Rangers are interested in Braves catcher/outfielder Evan Gattis, Atlanta asked for starting pitcher prospect Alex Gonzalez as part of the trade. However, that turned into a deal-breaker for Texas, according to MLB.com.

The 2013 first-round pick Gonzalez went 12-6 with a 2.66 ERA and 1.18 WHIP last season between high Class A and Double-A.


Rangers could turn to in-house candidate to fill out rotation


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(1/23/2014) If the Rangers don't bring in a high-profile free agent starting pitcher, then they will have many in-house choices to replace Derek Holland, who is expected to miss half the season due to a knee injury. Among the candidates are Colby Lewis, Nick TepeschMichael Kirkman, Jose Contreras, Luke Jackson and Alex Gonzalez, according to the Fort Worth Star-Telegram.

However, the paper notes it "would seem slim" that Gonzalez, the team's 2013 first-round pick, and Jackson, the team's minor-league pitcher of the year, would make the opening day rotation.

"If you look at our guys that finished the year with us, it’s Yu Darvish and Martin Perez and that’s really about it," pitching coach Mike Maddux said Tuesday. "We’d like to have some of these guys step up. Some of these guys that were healthy need to continue to be healthy, and some of these guys who were not, we’d love for them to regain their health.

"But we’re really looking for these diamonds in the rough to step up and fill the voids that we have. There’s going to be some intra-staff competition for those spots, and it’s going to be the 12 best fits that we can set up."
