Gonzalez (4-7) allowed three runs on six hits and zero while striking out two over seven innings Saturday in a 3-2 loss to the Royals.

EDGE Analysis

Though he recorded a loss, this is just the type of start that the White Sox and fantasy owners hope for from mid to lower-tiered starters. Gonzalez, a 32-year-old journeyman, has now thrown nine consecutive quality starts dating back to July 1, excluding a mid-August outing in which he left after the first inning and wound up on the disabled list with groin problems. His ERA for the second-half is now 2.96, in part because of improved control that has resulted in a decreased his walk rate from 9.0 percent in the first half to 4.2 percent in the second.

Gonzalez said he hopes to return to the White Sox in 2017, the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

EDGE Analysis

Gonzalez has been slightly above league-average in his 20 starts for the Sox this year, but he has been particularly impressive since the start of July. In 10 starts since July 1, he has a 2.56 ERA and 42:11 K:BB while also dealing with a groin injury. Chris Sale, Jose Quintana, and Carlos Rodon are all ticketed for rotation spots in 2017, but Gonzalez seems to be in fine position for one of the final two slots as he enters his last season before free agency.

Gonzalez (4-6) allowed three runs on six hits and two walks with four strikeouts over 6.2 innings in a win Monday against Cleveland.

EDGE Analysis

Gonzalez managed yet another quality start and has now thrown nine in a row dating back to July 1, an amazing run in which Gonzalez has allowed just 17 earned runs in 69.2 innings (2.20 ERA). His 42 strikeouts in that span are underwhelming, but Gonzalez has exhibited fantastic control (11 walks, 1.4 BB/9) which has helped him consistently go deep into games. His fantasy value is limited by his lack of strikeout stuff, but he's establishing himself as a valuable member of Chicago's rotation.

Gonzalez (3-6) allowed no runs on six hits, struck out four and walked none over 6.1 innings in a 2-0 victory over the Tigers on Tuesday.

EDGE Analysis

The 32-year-old was shelled in his last rehab start, but apparently that mattered very little. Gonzalez pitched to contact and exhibited excellent control not walking a batter. He has walked just one hitter in his last 20.1 frames. Gonzalez is 3-6 with a 3.81 ERA, 1.31 WHIP and 82 strikeouts over 108.2 innings.

Gonzalez (groin) has been activated from the DL and will start Tuesday against the Tigers, Scot Gregor of the Chicago Daily Herald reports.

EDGE Analysis

Gonzalez was shelled pretty badly in his last rehab outing, but the White Sox don't seem overly concerned, and will put him immediately back in the rotation. He'll take a 4.05 ERA to the mound, but given it's his first start back, Gonzalez is a risky fantasy option. With James Shields (back) a candidate to be shut down for the rest of the season, the starting pitching options are looking a bit thin in Chicago.

Gonzalez threw 4.1 innings in a rehab start at Triple-A Charlotte on Thursday, the Chicago Tribune reports.

EDGE Analysis

He struck out seven batters, but he also allowed six earned runs on 11 hits. The White Sox must not be too concerned with those results, as he is scheduled to return to the big league rotation next week.

Gonzalez (groin) is expected to be activated from the DL next week, Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

EDGE Analysis

The tentative plan is for Gonzalez to make a rehab start at Triple-A Charlotte on Thursday. If it goes as planned, he'll return to action sometime next week. Gonzalez, who has a 4.05 ERA and 1.33 WHIP for the year, had been improving over his last four games before being placed on the DL, as he posted a 2.61 ERA and 1.31 WHIP across said outings.

Gonzalez (groin) will head out on a rehab assignment Sunday, MLB.com's Scott Merkin reports.

EDGE Analysis

The White Sox haven't specified which affiliate Gonzalez will join, but the plan is to have him back by next weekend, when rosters will have expanded to 40 men. Once activated from the DL, Gonzalez will likely replace Anthony Ranaudo as the fifth starter in the Sox's rotation.

Gonzalez (groin) will throw a bullpen session Wednesday, and he could be close to a minor league rehab assignment, the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

EDGE Analysis

Gonzalez threw from a mound Friday, and this second session appears to be the next step before heading out to the minors. The minor league season ends soon, so his stay at Triple- or Double-A will not last long.

The White Sox placed Gonzalez (groin) on the 15-day DL Friday.

EDGE Analysis

Gonzalez suffered a groin strain in Thursday's game, the same injury he suffered last season with the Orioles. There is no timetable on his return at this time. Chris Beck has been recalled from Triple-A Charlotte in a corresponding move.
