After everything that has gone on with Mike Gonzalez from Spring Training until now, is anyone surprised at the news that came out this afternoon.
I've watched enough National League baseball and remember Mike Gonzalez pitching in relief as an Atlanta Brave to know something was wrong when I saw him last week.
From the Orioles.com: The team announced that Gonzalez is suffering from a strained left shoulder, and the move is retroactive to Saturday. The club said it would announce another roster move later on.
Baltimore manager Dave Trembley said before the game that Gonzalez had warmed up during Tuesday's 8-6 extra-innings loss to the Rays but said he couldn't pitch.
Gonzalez had problems in his first three games. He lost ninth-inning leads twice and barely escaped when he did get a save.
Let's hope Gonzalez's injury isn't more than just a strain.
Although the timing of the closer being placed on the DL is impeccable...
