Nationals | Gio Gonzalez getting ahead

Thu, 28 Apr 2016 10:49:47 -0700

Washington Nationals SP Gio Gonzalez has a career-high first-pitch strike percentage of 64.1% this year. Gonzalez has also improved his walk rate (6.8%) in his first four starts of the 2016 season.

Fantasy Tip: Gonzalez is 1-1 with a 1.42 ERA, 0.98 WHIP and 25 strikeouts in 25 1/3 innings. His improved control is certainly notable and could lead to a surprising year. It's still early, and a couple disaster outings could skew the numbers, but Gonzalez is worth watching for now and should be owned in shallow mixed leagues if he's still available.

Nationals | Gio Gonzalez continues strong start

Fri, 22 Apr 2016 19:15:34 -0700

Washington Nationals SP Gio Gonzalez allowed three runs, two earned, on six hits while striking out eight and walking one over six innings in a win over the Minnesota Twins Friday, April 22, and he has a 1.42 ERA after three starts with 20 strikeouts in 19 innings.

Fantasy Tip: Gonzalez is coming off a disappointing year by his standards, but he has been sharp thus far. He should be owned in all formats at this point, and he is worth a look in daily formats as long as his strikeout numbers remain impressive.

Nationals | Gio Gonzalez shines in no-decision

Sun, 17 Apr 2016 14:33:10 -0700

Washington Nationals SP Gio Gonzalez was dominant for the second time in as many outings this season, yielding four hits and striking out eight against the Philadelphia Phillies on Sunday, April 17.

Fantasy Tip: Gonzalez has been extremely unlucky thus far, failing to win either one of his turns despite posting a 0.69 ERA and 0.77 WHIP. Look for that luck to change in the near future as his next scheduled starts come at home against Minnesota on Friday and against the Phillies on April 28.

Nationals | Gio Gonzalez solid in debut

Tue, 12 Apr 2016 23:10:09 -0700

Washington Nationals SP Gio Gonzalez exhibited no rust in his first start of the regular season Tuesday, April 12, against the Atlanta braves. He allowed just three hits and a walk over six scoreless innings with four strikeouts in a no-decision and quality start.

Fantasy Tip: Gonzalez last appeared on the mound in a Grapefruit League spring game in late March, but he showed no rust. It also helped he was facing the hapless Braves. Still, he remains a solid fantasy option in most formats for his strikeout potential.

Nationals | Gio Gonzalez finally set to debut

Mon, 11 Apr 2016 21:51:22 -0700

Washington Nationals SP Gio Gonzalez is set to make his regular season debut Tuesday, April 12, against the Atlanta Braves. He hasn't pitched in more than two weeks since his last appearance in a Grapefruit League spring game March 27.

Fantasy Tip: Gonzalez might be a little rusty, and surprisingly he has struggled against Atlanta. Since the start of the 2013 season he is 2-6 with a 4.53 ERA over nine starts against Atlanta, so DFS players might want to avoid him.

Nationals | Stephen Strasburg to start second game

Sun, 03 Apr 2016 09:50:12 -0700

Updating a previous report, Washington Nationals SP Stephen Strasburg will start the second game of the season against the Atlanta Braves Wednesday, April 6, according to manager Dusty Baker. SPs Gio Gonzalez and Joe Ross will be available out of the bullpen for that game.

Fantasy Tip: Strasburg had previously been scheduled to start the home opener versus the Miami Marlins Friday, April 8, and no reason was given for the switch. Strasburg should be viewed as a low-end SP1, with health concerns being the primary reason keeping him from being rated higher.

Nationals | Gio Gonzalez to be No. 2 starter

Wed, 23 Mar 2016 18:45:24 -0700

Washington Nationals SP Gio Gonzalez will start the team's second regular-season game versus the Atlanta Braves Tuesday, April 5.

Fantasy Tip: Gonzalez is a solid SP3 option in mixed fantasy formats, although he struggles with his control at times and sometimes experiences difficulty pitching deep into games. The 30-year-old southpaw went 11-8 with a 3.79 ERA in 31 starts last season, with 169 strikeouts in 175 2/3 innings.

Nationals | Gio Gonzalez had shaky outing

Wed, 09 Mar 2016 20:16:15 -0800

Washington Nationals SP Gio Gonzalez threw just 28 strikes in 60 pitches in 2 2/3 innings in his Grapefruit League outing Wednesday, March 9.

Fantasy Tip: Gonzalez can be a bit wild at times, but when he's on he has one of the most reliable skills sets for a lefty starter. High pitch counts like the one he had Wednesday can limit his effectiveness as your fantasy starter though, so he's more of a third fantasy starter to build rotation depth.

Nationals | Washington's rotation outlook

Tue, 23 Feb 2016 15:59:11 -0800

Washington Nationals SPs Max Scherzer, Stephen Strasburg, Gio Gonzalez, Tanner Roark and Joe Ross are expected to be locked into the starting rotation this year. SPs Bronson Arroyo and Lucas Giolito could make decisions difficult, though, if they impress in spring training.

Fantasy Tip: Scherzer and Strasburg are fantasy aces without a doubt. Gonzalez provides veteran depth to a pitching staff. Ross has strikeout stuff like his brother Tyson and is a nice sleeper target in deep mixed leagues. Roark should be left for owners in NL-only universes. Giolito is one of the top overall prospects this year and could work his way into the rotation later in the year.

Nationals | Gio Gonzalez on the block

Fri, 08 Jan 2016 06:38:16 -0800

Washington Nationals SP Gio Gonzalez could be dealt to facilitate the team signing free-agent SP Wei-Yin Chen (Orioles). The Nats are discussing such a scenario, sources say.

Fantasy Tip: Gonzalez slipped up a bit last year and has reached 30 years old. He's still a great SP3. Chen has a bit more upside as he's younger, but he's in that SP3 range as well.
