Gonzalez allowed six runs on nine hits and two walks with four strikeouts while being pinned with the loss Saturday against the Nationals.

Gonzalez has hit a rough patch lately, failing to pitch beyond six innings in any of his last five starts and only tossing one quality start in that time. Keep in mind Gonzalez had a 2.19 ERA and a 1.10 ERA in the second half of 2014.

Gonzalez improved to 7-5 with a win over the White Sox on Sunday. He gave up just one run on four hits and one walk while striking out three over six innings.

His first two starts back from the DL were less than stellar -- he gave up 10 runs, including four homers, in 10.1 innings -- but Gonzalez took a step forward with this performance. The right-hander brought his ERA back below 4.00 and his WHIP and BAA now stand at 1.20 and .237, respectively. Keep in mind, though, that Gonzalez has given up 15 home runs in 88.1 innings this season and lines up to face a Nationals team his next time out that ranks fourth in the NL in homers.

Gonzalez gave up six runs on eight hits and three walks over 4.1 innings Tuesday against the Rangers.

He recorded just one strikeout in what was his worst start of the season and one of the worst starts of his career. The three home runs he surrendered tied a career high and the six runs were the most he had given up since his first start of the 2014 season. That said, the ball was really carry Tuesday, as Mitch Moreland hit a pair of homers out, as did Chris Davis with Manny Machado hitting one of his own. Gonzalez will have a much more manageable matchup in his next start Monday in Minnesota.

Gonzalez (groin) will start for the Orioles on Friday against the Blue Jays, MLB.com's Brittany Ghiroli reports.

Gonzalez gave up two earned runs on five hits and a walk in a rehab outing Saturday, and that gave the team enough faith to pencil him in for Friday's series opener. He'll be returning against a tough Toronto lineup, so fantasy owners may want to wait and see that the right-hander is at full strength before deploying him. Prior to landing on the disabled list, Gonzalez was 5-4 with a 3.33 ERA and 1.12 WHIP.

Gonzalez (groin) threw a successful mound session Thursday and will pitch at Double-A Bowie on Saturday, Dan Connolly of the Baltimore Sun reports. If all goes well Saturday, Gonzalez will start for the Orioles on June 25.

Gonzalez's rehab appears to be moving along as expected, and all signs point to him getting back on the mound for Baltimore in a week. On the year, Gonzalez is 5-4 with a 3.33 ERA and 59:24 K:BB ratio across 73.0 innings.

Gonzalez (groin), who will throw a bullpen session Thursday, could rejoin the Orioles to start a game against the Red Sox on June 25, Roch Kubatko of MASNsports.com reports.

Gonzalez was placed on the 15-day DL on Thursday with a strained right groin, Rich Dubroff of CSN Baltimore reports.

The O's did not immediately provide a timetable for Gonzalez's return, but the right-hander will need at least a couple weeks to get right after leaving Tuesday's game with the injury. Mike Wright was recalled in a corresponding move and could start Sunday, if he isn't needed out of the bullpen in the coming days. Kevin Gausman (shoulder) will eventually be an option to fill Gonzalez's rotation spot.

Gonzalez (groin) appears to be headed to the disabled list, Jon Morosi of FOX Sports reports.

Gonzalez left Tuesday's game in the fifth inning with a right groin strain, and although nothing official has been announced, it appears the right-hander will require a DL stint to get back to full strength. If that notion holds true and the Orioles find themselves in need of a fifth starter, they may end up turning to Kevin Gausman (shoulder) once he's activated from the disabled list.
