Marco Gonzales’ Dad Becomes Minor League Manager

Though the St. Louis Cardinals are among many organizations that have already named their minor league coaching staffs for 2015, other announcements are trickling out. One of Thursday’s has special interest to Cardinals followers. The Boise Hawks of the short-season Class-A Northwest League are undergoing considerable change in 2015.

Gonzales does his job in debut, lets new Cardinals teammates take care of the rest

Between the time Marco Gonzales threw his last pitch Wednesday afternoon and the end of the game, he could have made the 110-mile round trip between his home in Fort Collins and Coors Field. But he would have missed another wild and crazy game in the mile-high home of the Rockies, and he wouldn't want to do that even if he had not been making his major league debut. The Cardinals...

Gonzales' college coach saw it early: 'This guy has a presence'

It was four summers ago when Gonzaga coach Mark Machtolf went to see one of his incoming freshmen pitch for the Wenatchee (Wash.) AppleSox, a collegiate summer-league team. After watching Marco Gonzales for just two innings, Machtolf knew the Zags had landed a good one. "It was like, 'Oh my goodness, this guy has a presence,'" Machtolf said. "He looked like Tommy John or somebody...

Cardinals call on LHP Marco Gonzales for Wednesday start in Colorado

Except for a lack of experience, the Cardinals' decision to call up left-hander Marco Gonzales to start on Wednesday night makes great sense. And as Michael Wacha and a host of Cardinals' rookies proved in 2013, experience can be overrated. Gonzales has plenty else working in his favor. Namely, he has been pitching well. Gonzales, 22, has a 2.33 ERA after seven starts for Class AA...

Marco Gonzales and Michael Wacha. Valid Comparisons?

It’s easy to look at Michael Wacha and Marco Gonzales and see two very similar pitchers. But, what comparisons are valid, and where do the two separate? Both were 21 years old, first round draft, 19th pick draftees. Both had finished their junior year at solid baseball programs. Wacha and Gonzales show an average to slightly above average fastball with the changeup as the go-to...
