BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2015 The Phillies ended up getting Gonzalez for much less than expected—his deal was negotiated down from six years and $49 million (then a record for a Cuban import) to 3/$12M after a physical—but even that outlay wasn't made with the notion of making him a reliever. But after four months on the mend from a shoulder injury, he returned with lousy control, and his stuff "started to break down" after 30 or 40 pitches, Amaro told the Philadelphia Daily News. While the Phillies will try to stretch him back out as a starter, the leash will be short. He has a readymade three-pitch mix headlined by a fastball that can touch the mid-90s, along with a solid curveball and emerging changeup. But it's not a frontline package, and he's not a young man.
2014 Gonzalez marks the Phillies' first recent, significant venture into the foreign free agent market. He was originally signed to a six-year, $48 million deal, but after a physical, the Phillies renegotiated a three-year, $12 million deal. Gonzalez will initially compete for a job in the starting rotation, but many see a future as a reliever. He throws a vast array of pitches including a mid-90s fastball, a splitter and a slider. Under new manager Ryne Sandberg, Gonzalez will work with a new cast of coaches after long time pitching coach Rich Dubee was given the pink slip. Their ability to mold Gonzalez and hone his arsenal will play a big role in his success or failure with the Phillies.
