Red Sox southpaw Stephen Gonsalves healthy, excited to live up to hype

WORCESTER — Stephen Gonsalves has been described as one of the more interesting players participating at the Boston Red Sox’ alternate camp at Polar Park. As a non-roster invitee, the 6-foot-5, 215-pound left-handed pitcher has the pedigree to one day soon help the Boston Red Sox on the mound. He was once one of the brightest prospects in the Minnesota Twins organization, before a stress fracture in his elbow derailed his development, and he was forced to miss the entire 2019 season. So, other than a spring training outing, he has not pitched in a real game since 2018.

Red Sox's Stephen Gonsalves: Bound for minors

The Red Sox reassigned Gonsalves to their minor-league camp Wednesday, Julian McWilliams of The Boston Globe reports. Gonsalves is projected to open the 2021 season as a member of the Triple-A Pawtucket rotation. His lone big-league action came with the Twins back in 2018, when he submitted a 6.57 ERA and 2.03 WHIP in 24.2 innings across seven outings (four starts).

Red Sox's Stephen Gonsalves: Rejoins Boston on MiLB pact

Gonsalves re-signed Dec. 22 with the Red Sox on a minor-league contract, Christopher Smith of The Springfield Republican reports. Gonsalves reportedly impressed the Red Sox at their alternate training site this summer, but it wasn't enough for him to earn a callup to the big club during the 60-game season. Despite being outrighted off the 40-man roster earlier this offseason, Gonsalves elected to stick around in the organization for another year. Expect him to open the 2021 campaign in the Triple-A Worcester rotation.
