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.
Seattle Mariners left-hander Marco Gonzales left his Wednesday start against the Tampa Bay Rays in the first inning after being hit in the left wrist by a line drive. Gonzalez was on his 11th pitch of the game when Harold Ramirez sent a liner back up the middle, striking Gonzales on his pitching arm. The veteran hurler was replaced on the mound by Yohan Ramirez. Gonzales will head off for X-rays, so expect the Mariners to update his status after the completion of Wednesday's game. The 30-year-old has a 3.86 ERA through four starts in 2022.
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.
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.
