2015

Subscribe now to see our 2015 outlook.

2014

Gonzalez came out of nowhere in 2012 and proved that he wasn't a fluke with his 2013 campaign. He is a solid middle of the rotation starter, though the Orioles could use him as high as their No. 2 given his recent results. Gonzalez maintained his velocity on all of his pitches in 2013 while winning 11 games. A 38.9% groundball rate leaves room for improvement, especially since Gonzalez carried a 6.3 K/9. Along with Chris Tillman and Wei-Yin Chen, Gonzalez seems like a near lock to make the rotation entering 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.
