Marco Gonzales News
Seattle Mariners left-hander Marco Gonzales' (forearm) status for the rest of the 2023 season remains unclear after general manager Justin Hollander said on Tuesday that the nerve irritation in his left forearm is still there. "Just the amount of time -- even if he felt great today, he would need a significant ramp-up, having been out for a while. It's becoming less likely by the day," Hollander said. Gonzales was moved to the 60-day injured list on July 26 and has been out of action since June 3. Fantasy managers that are still holding onto the 31-year-old southpaw should probably cut bait and look for better options. In his 10 starts this year, Gonzales has a 5.22 ERA, 1.46 WHIP and only 34 strikeouts in 50 innings of work.
Seattle Mariners left-handed starting pitcher Marco Gonzales (forearm) has been placed on the 15-day injured list with a left forearm strain. The veteran southpaw pitched well in his last start against the Pirates on Sunday but started to experience some forearm tightness afterward. You never like to see a pitcher having forearm issues so it's safe to assume Gonzales will be out for at least the minimum of 15 days. He currently has no timetable for his return as he's set to undergo further tests over the weekend. Easton McGee (elbow) was transferred to the 60-day injured list and Bryan Woo was recalled from Double-A Arkansas in a pair of corresponding moves.
Seattle Mariners left-hander Marco Gonzales (forearm) is having tests on his left forearm back in Seattle, which is why the Mariners are calling up pitching prospect Bryan Woo to start against the Texas Rangers on Sunday. Gonzales had discomfort in his left forearm in his most recent start against the Pittsburgh Pirates last Sunday and will now miss at least his start this weekend in Texas. We'll have to wait for the results of the 31-year-old southpaw's tests, but there's a good chance he'll be placed on the injured list. In 10 starts for Seattle so far this year, Gonzales is 4-1 with a 5.22 ERA (4.31 FIP), 1.46 WHIP, 18 walks and 34 strikeouts in 50 innings pitched. He had a 5.68 ERA in four May starts and just doesn't carry enough strikeout upside to be a very reliable mixed-league fantasy arm.
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.
