Gio Gonzalez pitches well again

Don't know if you guys noticed, but Gio Gonzalez is breezing through innings in Bristol. It's a small sample size, but his numbers are impressive:

6 IP, 4 H, 0 ER, 1 BB, 12 K

That's a great way for a young man to start his major league career.

He had a rough outing the other day that was exacerbated by a spat of errors behind him. Pray he stays healthy, because the kid is a MAJOR talent, no doubt about that.

Yesterday he went 3 innings giving up 2 H, 0 R, 0 BB, and 6 K's. Me Likey!

This is the same kid they said on draft day could start in Kannapolis if I'm not mistaken. Very encouraging.

This may seem like a stupid question but he projects as a starter, right?

They said something to the order of "this kid's so good he could start at Kannapolis!" Some construed that to mean he WOULD start there, although I think most that regularly follow the minors knew that would not be the case, at least not initially.

Starting a high schooler in A ball would be pretty amazing. I can't imagine too many have gone that route, most need some seasoning in rookie ball before making the jump.

I know nothing about the guys the Sox drafted, but it's so ironic that after reading the little blurb on Gonzalez, I knew he was going to be good. They talked about his curveball, and praised other aspects of his game. It's encouraging to see another pitching prospect.

Another strong outing for gio today. 3 innings 1 run, 6 k's 0 walks. I love the 0 walks, with the stuff and control this kid has, he's got a real chance to be special if he can stay healthy.

Yep, they're just getting him fully stretched out, he should be able to go 5 or 6 innings within his next couple starts.

I wanted to give this thread a bump and ask for some updated numbers on how the kid is doing.

Thanks in advance.
