The New York Yankees have reached an agreement with a former pitcher from the Washington Nationals. Gio Gonzalez. Jon Heyman's MLB Network was the first to report that the agreement was concluded.
The contract contains a base salary of $ 3 million if it reaches the majors, by Ken Rosenthal of the sporty one. Rosenthal also said that the agreement provided for a withdrawal on April 20, as well as incentives for the creation of games. We can assume that Gonzalez will miss the start of the season because he missed 3/4 of the spring training.
The 33-year-old southpaw has had a solid year, sharing his time with the Milwaukee Nationals and Brewers. In 32 starts, the southern paw posted an hourly average of 4.21, 4.16 FIP, 1.444 WHIP to go with a record of 10-11.
Although these statistics do not disappoint, he finished his 2018 season with a 3-0 record with a 2.13 ERA, 3.63 FIP and .947 WHIP in his last five starts. His strong start in the stretch helped the Brewers win the NL Central Division title.
With exactly ten days to go before the Bronx Bomber regular season, Gonzalez should be ready by the second or third week. The veteran leftist now provides insurance in the rotation of the Yankees, who will be without theirs Luis Severino (expected in May) and left-handed starter CC Sabathia to start the 2019 season.
