BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2016 After three years defying the laws of FIPsics, Gonzalez's ERA finally caught up to the expectations laid forth by his peripheral stats. Yardballs have been his greatest weakness throughout his big-league tenure, and on that front he reached new lows (or, more literally, highs—the bad one) in 2015. Besides the quantity was the context: His home run rate traditionally drops by almost half when runners are on, a disparity that he couldn't maintain last year. Part of what keeps his head above water is his static pattern of pitch sequencing, maintaining his frequency of pitch types regardless of count, situation or batter handedness, rather than falling into a predictable pattern such as early fastballs and late secondaries. As for the predictable pattern of allowing a home run every 25th batter, however...
2015 Half the Orioles rotation was pretty okay but overrated, and the other half pretty okay but underrated. Gonzalez was part of the latter. He's a late bloomer, was a non-prospect, and his peripherals could belong to almost any Quad-A starter, but the record of success is adding up: He's now at 450 career innings of FIP resistance, and his ERA+ over the past three years is better than Jon Lester's or Madison Bumgarner's. We probably shouldn't have gone there, but you get the point.

So where does that FIP/ERA discrepancy come in? His career BABIP, at .266, is one of the league's lowest, partly because he gets far more fly balls than the typical pitcher, without all the extra line drives that sometimes come along with that. Partly it's because fewer of the line drives he has allowed end up base hits—maybe that's the Orioles' frequent shifting, or maybe luck, or maybe it just has to do with how batted balls in Camden Yards get classified, but it has saved him about 16 hard-stung hits in his career. Finally, while he hasn't generally been clusterlucky, an exceptionally high percentage of his home runs allowed have come with bases empty—76 percent, compared to the 58 percent league average.

Each of those factors has a different expectation of regression, but it's not outlandish to conclude that between his batted ball tendencies, the Orioles' defense, and maybe a little moxie there's reason to at least hope he'll defy FIP a bit more. But it's fairly clear he's in no position to improve beyond pretty okay back-end starter. At 30 years old and under team control for three more seasons, he'll never earn the chance to become an overpaid starting pitcher. Or, probably, an overrated one.

2014 Gonzalez backed up his stunning major-league debut with essentially a repeat performance. His ERA jumped some, but he added 66 innings to his bottom line and continues to impress considering his path to the majors, the highlights of which are: undrafted free agent; Rule 5 pick; Tommy John surgery; didn't sign a 2012 contract until May 29th. His one major flaw is the long ball, but as a back-end starter the Orioles have to be thrilled with their scrap heap acquisition. Stories like Gonzalezs are what make baseball great, and Baltimore pretty good.
2013 If you predicted that Miguel Gonzalez would emerge to post a 3.25 ERA last season, you might have also predicted that Albert Pujols would quit baseball and turn into a purple-feathered half-tuna, half-Velociraptor creature. You also might want to see a psychiatrist. Still, here we are, and Gonzalez looks like he can be a solid starter. He has always had good command, and his stuff actually looked more than respectable last season: a high-rising 92-mph four-seamer, a brutal splitter, a hard slider with good tilt, a solid curve, and a sinker. Given his good pitchability, there are plenty of reasons to believe Gonzalez is for real, if not as a 3.25-ERA pitcher, as one capable of sitting in the low 4.00s.
2010 A Rule 5 pick out of the Angels' system, Mexican righty Miguel Gonzalez pitched well in 5 2/3 innings of winter ball in 2008, but otherwise hasnt pitched since 2007 due to knee and elbow injuries; hell be 26 in May.
2007 An undrafted amateur who`s pitched well enough to attract notice is a pretty rare thing, but Miguel Gonzalez has pulled it off in only two years as a pro despite a relatively modest assortment.
