Miguel Gonzalez SP BAL 6 Days

Gonzalez allowed three runs on three hits and three walks with one strikeout while taking the loss Saturday against the Yankees.

Gonzalez fell to 9-8 on the season. He is not a strikeout-heavy pitcher, so his lone strikeout is not much of a surprise. Despite that, Gonzalez now has six quality starts in a row.

Gonzalez won Monday against the Red Sox as he allowed six hits and three walks to go along with four strikeouts in 6.1 scoreless innings.

Gonzalez has been fantastic of late as he has only allowed four runs over his last 34.2 innings. He is getting hot at the right time for the Orioles as they make their push towards the playoffs.

Gonzalez tossed his first career shutout Wednesday against the Reds, scattering four hits with eight strikeouts and one walk.

The Reds have not hit much in quite some time and Gonzalez got to pitch against them while they are down. Nonetheless, it is a highlight for Gonzalez, who has been serviceable again this year. He only has eight wins, but Gonzalez was briefly sent to the minors during the All-Star break and he had a stint on the DL. There is even a chance Gonzalez is in the discussion for the playoff rotation.

Gonzalez was on his game Friday night, allowing just one run on four hits, walking one and striking out six over seven innings of a 9-1 win against Minnesota.

Gonzalez (7-7, 3.61 ERA) was put back in the rotation when the Orioles decided to move Ubaldo Jimenez to the bullpen and he continues to justify that decision. He's not flashy, but he keeps the O's in games and they have the offense to turn that into wins. He'll take on the Reds in Camden Yards next time out.

Gonzalez surrendered six hits and two earned runs in 6.1 innings, but ultimately picked up the losing decision against the Cubs on Sunday.

Gonzalez was recalled from Double-A Bowie for Sunday's start, this coming after the Orioles decided to bump Ubaldo Jimenez from the rotation. Gonzalez was efficient in his return, needing 85 pitches to get through 6.1 innings, and he struck out three batters without allowing a walk. His next start will fall on Friday at home against Minnesota.

Gonzalez was recalled from Double-A Bowie on Sunday, MLB.com reports.

The Orioles made the tough decision to drop Ubaldo Jimenez and his massive contract from the rotation a few days ago, paving the way for Gonzalez to rejoin the big club. On merit alone, Gonzalez certainly deserves the appointment over Jimenez. He's gone 6-6 with a 3.80 ERA, 1.40 WHIP and 80 strikeouts over 113.2 innings with the Orioles, numbers that aren't eye-popping, but that are perfectly acceptable for a No. 5 starter. He'll take the ball Sunday against the Cubs in his return to the Orioles.

Gonzalez will return to the Orioles' rotation Sunday against the Cubs, Brittany Ghiroli of MLB.com reports.

The team has seemingly come to regret the decision to bump Gonzalez from the rotation in favor of Ubaldo Jimenez, as the team will turn back to Gonzalez on Sunday. Jimenez will be moved to the bullpen. Gonzalez has a 3.80 ERA and 1.41 WHIP for the season but showed significant improvement in July, with a 1.82 ERA in four outings.

Gonzalez will throw a 75-pitch simulated game Monday with Double-A Bowie and then rejoin the big league club.

The team hasn't revealed their immediate plans with Gonzalez, but he could very well replace Ubaldo Jimenez in the near future.

Gonzalez was sent to Double-A Bowie on Friday, Eduardo A. Encina of the Baltimore Sun reports.

Gonzalez is set to rejoin the Orioles on Aug. 19 according to an earlier report. The reason for his move to Double-A is unclear, but doesn't appear to have an effect on his potential start.

Gonzalez will make one appearance in Triple-A Norfolk before ultimately rejoining the Orioles on Aug. 19 in Chicago, Eduardo A. Encina of the Baltimore Sun reports.

Gonzalez was optioned to Triple-A Norfolk on Saturday as he seems to be in limbo between the Orioles' rotation and Triple-A. After his appearance with Norfolk on either the 12th or 13th, he'll have an opportunity to impress in Chicago where he'll likely get the starting nod on the 19th.
