Mariners' Marco Gonzales: Knocked around by Yankees

Gonzales (6-11) took the loss against the Yankees on Monday, pitching 5.1 innings and allowing six runs on nine hits and three walks while striking out five batters. Gonzales fell behind early in the contest, surrendering a three-run home run to Anthony Rizzo in the first inning. He gave up a two-run shot to Aaron Judge in the second and a solo homer to Jose Trevino in the fourth, and all six of the runs against him came via the long ball. This was the third time in Gonzales' past four outings that he's given up at least five runs, and his season ERA has risen from 3.24 to 3.95 as a result of the poor stretch.

Mariners' Marco Gonzales: Has trouble with long ball

Gonzales (5-10) took the loss Friday versus the Astros, allowing five runs on nine hits and a walk with two strikeouts in 5.2 innings. Gonzales was responsible for solo shots by Jose Altuve, Yordan Alvarez and Martin Maldonado. Prior to the All-Star break, Gonzales hadn't given up a home run in his last three starts, but Friday marked the fourth straight start where he's allowed at least eight hits. The contact-heavy style is beginning to catch up with the southpaw, who now has a 3.74 ERA, 1.39 WHIP and 55:35 K:BB across 106 innings through 19 starts. He's projected for a home start versus the Rangers next week.

Mariners' Marco Gonzales: Pitches to contact in win

Gonzales (5-9) earned the win over Toronto on Thursday, allowing three runs (two earned) on eight hits over 6.2 innings. He did not walk or strike out any batters. Gonzales surrendered an unearned run in the second inning and two earned runs in the fifth, but he allowed only one extra-base hit (a double) and made it through 6.2 frames on an efficient 88 pitches. Contact was the name of the game for the southpaw in the win -- he notched only two swinging strikes and didn't produce any punchouts for the first time this season. Per Daniel Kramer of MLB.com, Gonzales became the first Seattle pitcher in over a decade to toss a quality start without a walk or a strikeout. The veteran's lack of punchouts (he has just 49 over 94.1 innings on the season) is a detriment in fantasy, but he's nonetheless been a useful starter with seven quality starts over his past eight appearances.

Marco Gonzales is having a record-breaking season

There have been more than 10,000 qualified pitching seasons in history, and there’s a statistic for which the all-time leader is Marco Gonzales. I’m going to say that again: number one, out of more than 10,000. The statistic in question? The gap between his ERA and his FIP...

Mariners' Marco Gonzales: Falters in seventh inning

Gonzales (4-8) took the loss Sunday versus the Angels. He allowed two runs on five hits and four walks while striking out five in six-plus innings. Gonzales got through six innings unscathed, but he allowed a solo home run to Luis Rengifo to lead off the seventh. Monte Harrison then drew a walk, and Andres Munoz would later give up an RBI single for the decisive run in the contest, which went on Gonzales' line. Despite the late fade, this was the fourth straight start in which the southpaw limited the opposition to two or fewer runs. He's maintained a steady 3.31 ERA, 1.31 WHIP and 47:31 K:BB across 81.2 innings in 15 starts overall. The 30-year-old is projected to start at home against the Athletics next week in a favorable matchup.

Mariners' Marco Gonzales: Earns win over A's

Gonzales (4-7) allowed two runs on seven hits and a walk while striking out two in seven innings to earn the win Tuesday over the Athletics. Gonzales received ample support from the Mariners' offense, which provided four home runs. The southpaw's one mistake was a two-run homer to Nick Allen in the seventh inning. With quality starts in six of his last eight outings, Gonzales has provided steady pitching for the Mariners. He has a 3.33 ERA, 1.30 WHIP and 42:27 K:BB across 75.2 innings overall. He's projected for a road start versus the Angels this weekend.

Mariners' Marco Gonzales: Wild in no-decision

Gonzales allowed two runs on two hits and six walks while striking out four in 4.1 innings versus the Red Sox on Friday. He did not factor in the decision. Gonzales' lack of command led to him leaving with the Mariners down 2-0, though Jesse Winker's two-run blast in the fifth inning got the starter off the hook. This was the first time in four starts Gonzales has issued multiple walks, which makes this seem like more of an anomaly than the start of a troubling trend. The southpaw has a 3.63 ERA, 1.37 WHIP and 38:24 K:BB through 62 innings across 12 starts this season. He'll look to improve on a 3-6 record next week in a projected start versus the Twins.
