Philies option Miguel Alfredo Gonzalez, Hector Neris


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(9:43 am ET) The Phillies optioned pitchers Miguel Alfredo Gonzalez and Hector Neris to Triple-A Lehigh Valley and reassigned four players to minor-league camp.

Gonzalez was in the mix to win a rotation spot heading into the spring but posted a 7.53 ERA while giving up 25 hits in 14 1/3 innings. Neris surrendered 10 runs (eight earned) in nine spring innings.

The team reassigned pitcher Paul Clemens, catcher Koyie Hill and infielders Chris McGuiness and Chris Nelson to minor-league camp.


Phillies' Gonzalez suffers third spring loss Wednesday


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/25/2015) Phillies pitcher Miguel Alfredo Gonzalez, who is competing for a spot in the rotation, suffered his third spring loss during Thursday's game against the Astros. Gonzalez (0-3) allowed four runs on eight hits and no walks, while striking out one in four innings during a 7-1 loss.

Gonzalez allowed back-to-back solo home runs to Carlos Correra and Hank Conger in the fourth inning. His ERA is at 7.53 through five appearances (four starts).

“It’s not the right time to be frustrated,” Gonzalez said through a translator, per The News Journal. “If I’m going to make mistakes, let it be in spring training. If it comes to that, I’ll get frustrated in the regular season but not now.”


Phillies' Miguel Alfredo Gonzalez allows two runs Sunday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(3/15/2015) Phillies pitcher Miguel Alfredo Gonzalez surrendered two earned runs on three hits in three innings while striking out two in Sunday's spring-training matchup against the Red Sox.

Gonzalez was making his first appearance since being struck on the knee by a line drive earlier this week. He's allowed a home run in each of his three spring outings, but Sunday's start was his first lasting longer than two innings. Gonzalez could be a rotation factor this season with Cliff Lee dealing with elbow issues.

"He made a good adjustment," Phillies manager Ryne Sandberg said. "I thought he was more aggressive attacking the zone, and his pace was better. It looked like he was a little careful there in the first inning to two hitters. After that, I thought he had a whole different demeanor about him, a whole different strategy and that was attacking guys."


Phillies' Miguel Alfredo Gonzalez hit by comebacker Tuesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(3/10/2015) Phillies pitcher Miguel Alfredo Gonzalez came out of Tuesday's game after being struck by a line drive, but he was removed for precautionary reasons and diagnosed with a right knee contusion, the Philadelphia Daily News reports.

Gonzalez was pitching in the top of the third inning when he was forced from the game. He had surrendered three earned runs on five hits in two-plus innings while striking out two and walking none. The outing gives the pitcher four earned runs in four spring innings. He said Tuesday that the injury won't keep him from taking his regularly-scheduled turn in the rotation.


Phils' Sandberg on Gonzalez's spring debut: Best I've seen him throw


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/5/2015) Phillies pitcher Miguel Alfredo Gonzalez didn't make a strong impression Thursday against the Astros in his first attempt to win a spot in the team's rotation. However, manager Ryne Sandberg wasn't just focused on the results of Gonzalez's spring debut.

“The best stuff I’ve seen since he’s come over here [from Cuba],” Sandberg said, per The Journal News. “It looks like he’s healthy. Looks like he has some zip on his fastball. That can get better as he goes here. Compared to last year, night and day.”

The right-hander allowed two runs on four hits in two relief innings. He entered the game after Cliff Lee threw two scoreless innings. Gonzalez struck out one and gave up a home run.

“It doesn’t matter about the line,” Gonzalez said through a translator. “My plan that I had all along was to show my work ethic today. I don’t look at the numbers.”


Phillies' Miguel Alfredo Gonzalez pushing for starting role in 2015


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(3/1/2015) Phillies pitcher Miguel Alfredo Gonzalez is pushing for a spot in the starting rotation in 2015. He and David Buchanan look to be fighting for the final spot in Philadelphia's rotation, reports MLB.com.

"I've always been a starter," Gonzalez said through a translator Sunday. "That's important. I'm used to that. I've always been one."

Gonzalez appeared in six games in 2014, posting an 0-1 mark with a 6.75 ERA in 5 1/3 innings.

"It didn't go as well as I wanted last year," Gonzalez said. "This year I'm much better prepared, and much more mentally focused on what I have to do. The setbacks last season … I thought I was physically ready and I'd have a setback. If it wasn't one thing it was another. This year, all that stuff is out of the way."


Phillies seeing 'positive things' with Miguel Alfredo Gonzalez


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(2/24/2015) Phillies pitcher Miguel Alfredo Gonzalez is set to compete for the final spot in the team's rotation this spring and is healthy after battling shoulder soreness the previous spring. He drew positive reviews after pitching a batting-practice session Tuesday, the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

"I see a ball that's coming out of his hand much better than it was last year," Phillies pitching coach Bob McClure said of Gonzalez. "He was a little nicked up last year, so we can understand that. He's healthier. He knows what's expected in big-league spring training. He knows there are spots open, so he's fighting for a job. I'm seeing a lot of positive things."

Gonzalez mixed in his curveball and changeup during Tuesday's session. General manager Ruben Amaro Jr. left open the possibility that Gonzalez could pitch out of the bullpen but added that the team views him as a starter.

"We signed him to be a starter. I think he feels more comfortable in that role, but we'll make the adjustments accordingly," Amaro said. "It's not out of the realm of possibility he could throw in the bullpen, but we view him as a starter as well."

Gonzalez made just six appearances with the Phillies last season, giving up four earned runs in 5 1/3 innings.


Phillies RHP Miguel Alfredo Gonzalez targets rotation spot


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10/22/2014) Phillies general manager Ruben Amaro has declared that Cuban import Miguel Alfredo Gonzalez will compete for a rotation spot in spring training.

Gonzalez was winless in four decisions at three different levels in the minors but performed well enough to record a 3.11 ERA. He struggled with his control with 26 walks in 46 1/3 innings.

"We're going to give him every opportunity to be in our rotation," Amaro said via MLB.com. "We have to try to create as many opportunities for starting pitching as we possibly can. We're not going to be able to go through a season with five or six pitchers. It's probably going to take seven to 10 pitchers.

"He personally feels more comfortable being in the rotation. Whether or not he can provide that remains to be seen. But after speaking with him it was very important to him to be prepared mentally and physically for this offseason to get stretched out."

Gonzalez was promoted to the Phillies in September and yielded four runs on nine hits in 5 1/3 innings.

Miguel Alfredo Gonzalez likely to get first taste of the majors


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(8/29/2014) Phillies pitcher Miguel Alfredo Gonzalez has thrived since making the switch to the bullpen at Triple-A Lehigh Valley, and the Philadelphia Inquirer reports Friday is "almost a lock" to join the team when rosters expand next week.

Gonzalez has appeared in 11 games out of the bullpen at Triple-A, posting a 1.72 ERA with 17 strikeouts and eight walks in 15 2/3 innings. The 27-year-old struggled mightily at Class A Clearwater earlier in the season, before the switch to the bullpen was made, after a disappointing run in spring training.

"He wasn't sharp, he wasn't strong in spring training," manager Ryne Sandberg said. "So to see what he's doing now, see what that looks like, anxious to see that if he's one of the guys. He should be one of the guys."
