Poll Results: Where should Marco Gonzales begin the season for the Cardinals in 2015?

(Photo by John Leyba/The Denver Post) On Monday, I asked Cards fans where they thought Marco Gonzales should start next season. I felt like there were three possible outcomes, a spot in the starting rotation, a spot on the major league bullpen, or a spot in the Triple-A Memphis’ starting rotation. Also on Monday, John Mozeliak and Mike Matheny had their end-of-the-year press conference...

Monday Poll: Where should Marco Gonzales start the 2015 season for the Cardinals?

When the 2014 season opened, Marco Gonzales was just 23 1/3 innings and 3 months into his professional baseball career. When the season ended, he had over 40 major league innings under his belt. His major league debut came just a little more than a year after being drafted in the first round by the Cardinals. His first three appearances were rough, 11 earned runs over 14 innings...

A Deeper Look at the Debut of Marco Gonzales

Another young pitcher has been added to the long list of those who have made their debut with the Cardinals in the past couple of years. Marco Gonzales made his MLB debut Wednesday afternoon in front of his friends and family in Colorado. While his final stat line leaves much to be desired, a lot of positives can be taken away from Gonzales’ start today. However, there were many...

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...

Cardinals' Gonzales set to debut in familiar park

DENVER -- Marco Gonzales grew up rooting for the Colorado Rockies, even pitched at Coors Field a few times in his high school career. Perhaps it's only fitting the St. Louis Cardinals left-hander will make his major league debut in familiar surroundings Wednesday. His father, Frank Gonzales, is flying in for the occasion, taking a break from his duties as a pitching coach for...

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...
