RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2018

Subscribe now to see our 2018 outlook.

2017

Just a season removed from making 10 starts in his first taste of the major league level, Gonzalez took a major step backward in 2016. The 2013 first-round draft pick was unable to claim the Rangers final rotation spot out of spring training, and even upon his relegation to Triple-A Round Rock, he struggled significantly to the tune of a 4.70 ERA and 1.43 WHIP. This poor showing limited him to just three starts in the big leagues, where he averaged just over three innings per start while walking more batters than he struck out. Gonzalez was once a prized prospect in the Rangers system, although his window to make good on that promise is closing. The 24-year-old should open 2017 at Triple-A, where he will have to earn to right to be considered should a rotation spot open up in Arlington.

2016

At first glance it looks like a stone-cold fluke that Gonzalez was able to muster a 3.90 ERA and 1.21 WHIP despite more walks than strikeouts. Both his walk and strikeout rate were terrible, however that didnít stop him from posting passable results in 67 innings. His .206 BABIP was a big reason for that, and while it would never sustain over a full season, he does deserve some credit. His sinker and slider kept hitters off balance and combined for a .146 average ó eighth-best among 139 pitchers who threw 300 combined sinkers and sliders. Those pitches were tough to square up, leading to a lot of weak contact (he managed just a 17 percent K rate with them), 114th among those same 139 pitchers. The strikeouts have to improve for fantasy viability, but Gonzalez was a heralded prospect so it is too early to write him off.

2015

Gonzalez is the most advanced starting pitcher in the minors who has yet to reach Triple-A. He does not have the upside of a No. 1 or No. 2 starter, but he could be a very good third starter on a contending team in the near future. His strong four-pitch arsenal sets him apart, highlighted by a low-to-mid 90s fastball and a slider that are already big-league caliber pitches, and a curveball with the potential to be a third plus offering. In his age-22 season, Gonzalez posted a 2.62 ERA in 65.1 innings at High-A Myrtle Beach and a 2.70 ERA in 73.1 innings at Double-A Frisco. Over those two stops, he managed just 113 strikeouts in 138.2 innings, demonstrating his limitations in that department, but preventing runs should not be a problem for the 6-foot-2 righty. Given the Rangersí lack of quality starting pitching depth, Gonzalez is a good candidate to join the rotation after a couple months at Triple-A Round Rock.
