Marco Gonzales News
Seattle Mariners starting pitcher Marco Gonzales made what is likely to be his final start of the regular season Friday, barring any crazy wild-card shenanigans over the weekend, and he finished strong with two runs allowed on three hits and two walks in six innings. He struck out five batters and was saddled with his sixth loss of the season. It's his fifth consecutive quality start, and his 10th in his last 12 outings. Gonzales had a tough beginning of 2021, but he's made his way back to being the model of consistency fantasy managers expect.
Seattle Mariners starting pitcher Marco Gonzales reached double-digit wins Sunday, recording his 10th of the year in a 5-1 victory over Shohei Ohtani and the Los Angeles Angels. Gonzales matched Ohtani pitch for pitch, finishing with one run allowed on three hits and three walks in seven innings. He struck out five batters. Gonzales now has four consecutive quality starts, and has recovered well from a disastrous start to the season. He'll enter 2022 as a solid floor option for fantasy managers once again.
Seattle Mariners starting pitcher Marco Gonzales earned his ninth win of the season Tuesday, throwing six innings and allowing two runs on four hits and a walk with three strikeouts against the Oakland Athletics. Both runs against Gonzales came off solo home runs. Gonzales has a 5-0 record over his last seven starts, and he's allowed more than three earned runs in just three starts out of 23 this season. Gonzales is a consistent, reliable option in fantasy, though his 98 strikeouts in 130 1/3 innings on the year limit his upside.
The 28-year-old Marco Gonzales authored a tremendous 2020 campaign for the Seattle Mariners, going 7-2 with a 3.10 ERA over 69 2/3 IP. Unfortunately, his peripherals suggest that nearly all of his success was the result of smoke and mirrors. Gonzales's 4.13 xFIP was more than a full run higher than his ERA. Gonzales rarely eclipses 90 mph on the radar gun, and his curve's 11.2 SwStr% was the highest mark in his entire five-pitch arsenal. As such, it's tough to project a repeat of his 23.1 K% in 2021. Likewise, his 37.6 GB% and zero DRS were way too low to try for a Dallas Keuchel approach. Baseball Savant's expected statistics also argue against any kind of contact suppression ability, as both his .245 xBA and .435 xSLG were way higher than his actual marks (.222 and .361, respectively). The Mariners are probably still a couple of years away from projecting as a strong club, so Gonzales probably won't win as many games in 2021 as he did in 2020. You have to figure that his 2.5 BB% will regress to something more mortal. Add it all together, and you can find a better fantasy arm with a price tag comparable to Gonzales's ADP of 152.
