Mariners lefty Marco Gonzales exits after being hit by comebacker


At 11-6, the Mariners headed into Wednesday with among the very best records in the AL (just a half video game behind the Blue Jays for the very best). They won Tuesday night, 8-4, at Tampa Bay, so they were riding high and sensation respectable. That sensation went south quite rapidly, as Wednesday’s beginning pitcher Marco Gonzales was struck with a line drive in the very first inning: 

That does not feel great, even simply to view. The shot was 109 miles per hour off the bat of Harold Ramirez. It captured Gonzales on the left forearm/wrist location and considered that he’s a left-handed pitcher, this appears like it might remain for a bit. 

The preliminary word from the Mariners is a left wrist contusion. He’ll go through additional tests and we’ll hear more details later on Wednesday night or perhaps eventually on Thursday. Even if it is “only” a swelling, basic reasoning determines that Gonzales’ next start remains in jeopardy if there’s any swelling at all — and he was struck on the wrist with a baseball taking a trip as much as 109 miles per hour. 

Gonzales, 30, was 1-1 with a 3.29 PERIOD, 1.39 WHIP and 13 strikeouts in 13 2/3 innings prior to taking the ball on Wednesday. He’s been a mid-rotation arm with frontline flashes in his time in the Mariners’ rotation. 

If Gonzales does need to miss out on any starts, the Mariners do not have an apparent replacement. Former big-leaguers Daniel Ponce de Leon and Asher Wojciechowski remain in their Triple-A rotation. If Gonzales just requires to miss out on one start, they might constantly piece together a bullpen video game, too.
