Marco Gonzales News
Seattle Mariners starting pitcher Marco Gonzales earned his fourth win of the season Tuesday, throwing seven strong innings against the Oakland Athletics. Gonzales allowed two runs on seven hits and a walk while striking out two batters. His ERA and WHIP for the season now sit at 3.33 and 1.30. Gonzales has only allowed more than three earned runs once in 14 starts this season, though he does not have the record to reflect that level of performance. He won't offer many strikeouts, but his ratios are strong, and he gets a value bump in leagues that reward quality starts.
Seattle Mariners starting pitcher Marco Gonzales was excellent against the Minnesota Twins Wednesday, but he was saddled with a hard-luck loss regardless. Gonzales allowed just one run on three hits and two walks in 6 2/3 innings, and the only run came across to score after Gonzales had already been removed from the game. He struck out two batters as his record for the season dropped to 3-7. Gonzales is never going to strike out many batters, with just 40 in 68 2/3 innings this year, but his ratios again make him a solid fantasy fill-in in the right matchups.
Updating a previous report, X-rays came back negative on Seattle Mariners starting pitcher Marco Gonzales' left wrist on Wednesday night after he took a 109 mph line drive off his arm against the Tampa Bay Rays in the first inning. The left-hander is dealing with a left wrist contusion and is hoping to make his next scheduled start on Monday in Houston. Gonzales dodged a bullet in his start on Wednesday, but it remains to be seen if he'll actually make his next scheduled start. The 30-year-old southpaw gave up a run on one hit while walking one and striking out one in just one-third of an inning to take the loss. Although he's 1-2 to start the season, Gonzales has been decent with five earned runs allowed on 16 hits while walking three and striking out 13 in 13 2/3 innings over his first three starts in 2022.
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.
