White Sox manager Rick Renteria said Sunday that he doesn't expect Gonzalez (shoulder) to require an extended stay on the disabled list, Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports. "It's more a precautionary tale for us," Renteria said. "We anticipate it's going to be a short-lived situation."

EDGE Analysis

Before he was moved to the DL earlier Sunday, Gonzalez received a cortisone shot to address the AC joint inflammation in his right shoulder and was able to play light catch without any pain. His activity will likely be limited over the next couple of days as he waits for the shot to have its desired effect, but if all goes according to plan, Gonzalez could toss a bullpen session by the end of the week. The White Sox activated James Shields (lat) from the DL in a corresponding move ahead of his start Sunday.

Gonzalez was placed on the 10-day disabled list Sunday with inflammation of the AC joint of his right shoulder, Colleen Kane of the Chicago Tribune reports.

EDGE Analysis

Even if his health weren't a factor, Gonzalez may have been on the outs for a rotation spot after giving up four-plus runs in his last three outings, including a season-worst eight runs in his most recent turn Wednesday against the Orioles. James Shields (shoulder) was activated from the disabled list in a corresponding move and will assume Gonzalez's starting role.

Gonzalez (4-8) allowed eight runs on nine hits and two walks while striking out three over five innings in Wednesday's 10-6 loss to the Orioles.

EDGE Analysis

The loss was Gonzalez's third straight and eighth in his last nine starts, a stretch in which the right-hander posted a 7.32 ERA with 11 home runs allowed over 51.2 innings. It's a strain to remember when Gonzalez opened the season with three wins in his first four starts. Fantasy owners have probably moved on from Gonzalez by now, but in case they haven't, the clock is ticking on his stay in the rotation. The White Sox will soon pivot to its young hurlers at Triple-A Charlotte. If he stays in the rotation, Gonzalez's next start will come Wednesday in Minnesota.

Gonzalez allowed four runs on six hits over 4.2 innings Friday against the Indians. He walked four batters and struck out just two.

EDGE Analysis

Perhaps Gonzalez's rough patch can be attributed to his lack of strikeouts. Over his last two starts, he has only fanned three batters. The right-hander has now lost seven of his last eight decisions and his ERA has ballooned to 5.01.

Gonzalez (4-6) allowed six runs on 10 hits -- three home runs -- while striking out just a single batter over six innings during Saturday's loss to the Tigers.

EDGE Analysis

Gonzalez grabbed his fourth win of the season against Detroit in his last start and allowed just three runs over 7.2 innings. Things obviously didn't go as smoothly Saturday. The 33-year-old righty sports a 4.83 ERA, 1.42 WHIP and 5.2 K/9 and has now allowed 24 runs over 29.1 innings through his past five starts. Those aren't encouraging numbers heading into a road start against the Indians.

Gonzalez (4-5) allowed three runs on six hits while walking none and fanning six over 7.2 innings in Sunday's 7-3 win over the Tigers.

EDGE Analysis

The 33-year-old right-hander took a perfect game into the seventh inning to snap his five-start losing streak. Gonzalez consistently got ahead of hitters all day and retired his first 18 hitters before Andrew Romine led off with a single. The streak to begin the game was the longest by a Chicago starter since Chris Sale retired his first 19 against the Angels on May 12 2013. Gonzalez lowered his ERA to 4.43 but still has a concerning 5.57 K/9 in 63 innings. The right-hander is purely a matchup play in deep mixed and AL-only leagues, and a risky one at that.

Gonzalez will make his next scheduled start Sunday against the Tigers.

EDGE Analysis

With Dylan Covey (oblique) presumably missing his turn in the rotation, the White Sox will move Gonzalez back a day to cover his spot. Fortunately, the 32-year-old will stay on track for a two-start week, but now he'll get to face off with Jordan Zimmerman in the series finale.

Gonzalez (3-5) pitched five innings, allowing five runs (four earned) on seven hits and a walk while striking out three in Monday's loss to Arizona.

EDGE Analysis

The right-hander faced just one over the minimum through the first three innings, allowing only a weak infield single during that run. Gonzalez ran into trouble in the fourth, when he surrendered a 407-foot, three-run homer to Daniel Descalso. Two frames later, the 33-year-old served up another deep fly, this time to Paul Goldschmidt. Over his past five outings, Gonzalez has given up six home runs to push his ratio up to a poor 1.3 HR/9. He'll take a 4.55 ERA and career-worst 1.48 WHIP into his next start Saturday versus Detroit.

Gonzalez (3-4) allowed five runs on six hits and five walks while striking out two over 5.2 innings in Wednesday's 12-8 loss to the Angels.

EDGE Analysis

Gonzalez was handed a four-run lead entering the bottom of the second, but he gave it all back on four walks and two hits. There's an old baseball adage about how walks can kill a pitcher, and Gonzalez as re-learned that recently. He's walked nine over his last two starts. Walks alone don't necessarily kill, but for someone like Gonzalez who pitches to contact, that volume of free passes has potential for disaster. Mix in 14 hits with those nine walks and the right-hander has given up 10 runs over 10.2 innings in his last two outings. His next scheduled start is Monday in Arizona.

Gonzalez (3-3) took the loss Friday against San Diego, allowing five earned runs on eight hits and four walks. He struck out two.

EDGE Analysis

It was a disappointing effort for the 32-year-old righty, who struggled with his command throughout the contest. The four walks matched a season high, and Gonzalez has now dropped his third consecutive decision. His ERA rose from 3.18 entering the game to 3.83. He remains a solid streaming option, even with limited strikeout potential (5.64 K/9).
