Default Gonzales done for the season...

Not that it was any big loss but the Sox announced he underwent shoulder surgery in Los Angeles.

Out 9-12 months.

Waste of money, suspect he won't be back again.

I looked up how much the Sox signed him for and it was higher than I expected. Oh well, at least he didn't limit payroll flexibility and it was just a 1-year deal.

On the bright side, at least the B-level prospect we got for trading him last year (Ti'Quan Forbes) has looked good at Winston Salem this year. He's just 21 and was a 2nd round pick by the Rangers. I'm not saying he's certain to succeed in the majors, but it was a nice return from Texas for one month of Gonzalez.

I believe Miguel Gonzalez has thrown his last big-league pitch. He's done.

Considering the success he had last year and the trade, it was a worthwhile gamble again to sign him to a one year deal.

He's likely done, at least with the Sox.
I got to talk to him in Minnesota early in the season and he was beyond friendly. He's a good guy and an easy guy to cheer for.

Enough of signing Humans to play. They break down too easily.

I didn't have a problem with the Sox bringing him back this season. It would be hypocritical of me now to say it was a bad signing. Just bad luck with the injury. They were hoping he would eat up some innings and pitch like he did in 2016 and early 2017. It was a reasonable gamble and a tough break for Miguel and the Sox.

I can't imagine a 35 year old pitcher that is recovering from shoulder surgery will be in high demand next year. He will likely need to accept a minor league deal next year and prove he can still pitch and stay healthy if he wants to continue playing.

It was worth the risk at a time we needed people eating innings. Now, we get to see who we have on the farm ready to come up and fill out a stretch or the season.

If so, he should be proud of what he accomplished. 6+ years in the majors, got paid $15 million bucks, threw almost 900 innings. Not bad for a 5th starter.
