News: Gonzalez scattered four hits over seven scoreless innings to record a no-decision against Arizona on Thursday. He issued three walks and struck out six. Impact: Gonzalez was relatively dominant Thursday, as he allowed just four singles. He's had a bunch of short outings in the last four weeks, so this was easily his best start in about a month, although he still hasn't won a game since July 5. Despite the nice performance Thursday, it's hard to trust Gonzalez, given his inconsistent season. On a positive note, Gonzalez continues to help out fantasy owners in the strikeout department, with 127 Ks in 120 innings this season. With an off day next week for the Nationals, Gonzalez will miss out on a two-start week, but he'll draw the Phillies on Tuesday.(RotoWire, )

News: Gonzalez gave up three runs on seven hits over five innings in a no decision against the Pirates on Saturday night. Impact: Pirates starter Jeff Locke pitched well, preventing Gonzalez from exiting with an opportunity to pick up his seventh win of the season Saturday. With a home start against an Arizona lineup sans Paul Goldschmidt (hand) next time out, the inconsistent left-hander should have a prime opportunity to rack up strikeouts Thursday.(RotoWire, )

News: Gonzalez lasted just 4.2 innings Sunday night against the Braves, allowing two earned runs, six hits and four walks while piling up eight strikeouts en route to his ninth loss of the season. Impact: After turning in eight shutout innings versus the Cubs back on July 5, things have taken a downhill turn for Gonzalez over his past six starts. The 28-year-old lefty's struggles during this stretch can mostly be attributed to a lack of command, as his 15 free passes across 31.1 innings have led to a 5.17 ERA and 1.56 WHIP. Gonzalez will attempt to get back on track next weekend against the Pirates.(RotoWire, )
