2014

2013

Perhaps no breakout story was as sweet as that of Gonzalez in 2012. The Orioles did not sign Gonzalez until early March and he did not appear in spring training. Gonzalez dominated Triple-A with a 5.3 K/BB ratio and a 0.72 WHIP in 44.2 innings. Gonzalez was promoted in late June and the 28-year-old rookie was Baltimore's most reliable pitcher in the second half. Gonzalez had Tommy John surgery in 2009 and threw harder than ever with his mid-90s fastball in 2012. He will have a leg up on the competition, but still needs to earn his rotation spot in spring training.
