Chilly start for Cardinals on first day of spring training

JUPITER, Fla. -- Marco Gonzales had just finished a workout, and the St. Louis Cardinals left-hander stood with his back to a stiff wind from the north that made the temperature feel like it was in the 30s. The start of spring training happened to coincide with the coldest day of the winter in Florida. "Being from Colorado, I'm right at home," Gonzales said. " But I'm ready for it...

Marco Gonzales: MLB Bullpen or AAA Rotation?

There are lots of interesting questions with spring training two weeks away. Who is playing center field? How many starts will Mark Reynolds get at first base? Who is the real catcher of the future behind Yadier Molina? Where does the lineup settle? Among those, the most intriguing question on my mind is the location of Marco Gonzales in 2015. Let’s say Carlos Martinez secures...

Marco Gonzales made his MLB debut Wednesday afternoon in front of his friends and family in Colorado.

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.

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...
