2019 Fantasy Outlook
Gonzales enjoyed a bounce-back season with Seattle thanks in part to a new cutter that gave him another weapon to attack righties. Righties crushed him in St. Louis in 2017 to the tune of .346/.388/.566, so Gonzales added a cutter and that slash line improved to .266/.309/.418 last season. His 4.00 ERA feels out of place for a pitcher with a 1.22 WHIP and a 16.5 K-BB%. Gonzales does not have another level when it comes to strikeouts, but the improving walk rate is encouraging for him since he averages more than a hit allowed per inning. As long as he can limit his walks, the extra hits get offset. The innings spike looks greater than it was -- Gonzales logged 126.1 innings between the minors and majors in 2017 in his first season back from Tommy John surgery. There is some concern for a letdown in 2019, but Gonzales has job security and a favorable home park, so he's at least in the mix as a streamer. Read Past Outlooks
