    Description: Nationals lefty Gio Gonzalez lasts only four innings Tuesday against the Giants.
    Insight: He actually did not let up any earned runs (two unearned), but was not particulary sharp. Gonzalez gave up four hits and had only one strikeout, before he was lifted for a pinch-hitter. He will look to rebound from a 10-10 season, and should be considered a potential sleeper in 2015, as there is a chance Gonzalez could be overlooked in drafts.
     
    9/25/2014 10:16:00 PM
    Description: Nationals lefty Gio Gonzalez strikes out 12 Mets.
    Insight: He was on fire tonight, going seven innings, allowing only one hit and two walks. Gonzalez finishes 2014 on a high note, and is now 10-10 with a 3.57 ERA. Drew Storen finished off the shutout for the Nats with his 11th save.
     
    9/24/2014 7:45:00 PM
    Description: Wednesday's game between the Mets and Nationals has been rained out.
    Insight: It will be made up on Thursday as part of a doubleheader. Gio Gonzalez should be in line to start the early game.
     
    9/18/2014 11:36:00 PM
    Description: Nationals pitcher Gio Gonzalez put in his bid to be the fourth starter come playoff time.
    Insight: Gio went seven innings and yielded six hits and two runs in earning his ninth win of the season. It's between Gonzalez and Tanner Roark as to who will start after Stephen Strasburg, Jordan Zimmermann and Doug Fister.
     
    9/17/2014 1:36:00 PM
    Description: Nationals pitcher Gio Gonzalez (rest) has been scratched from his start on Wednesday against Atlanta.
    Insight: With Washinton clinching the National League East on Tuesday, the team has decided to give Gio some extra rest. He will most likely be back on the mound Thursday, but check back just to make sure. Blake Treinen gets the ball for the Nats Wednesday night versus the Braves.
     
    9/7/2014 6:51:00 PM
    Description: Nationals pitcher Gio Gonzalez pitched six innings, allowed one earned run on five hits, struck out three and walked none as Washington defeated Philadelphia, 3-2.
    Insight: Gonzalez has had an up-and-down season and overall, it has been disappointing. He has pitched pretty well in his last two starts, winning both to raise his record to 8-9 and lowering his ERA to 3.78.
     
    8/21/2014 10:15:00 PM
    Description: Will the real Gio Gonzalez please stand up?
    Insight: Gonzalez pitched seven innings of shut out baseball, yielding four harmless singles and striking out six. He had not pitched well over his previous four games, posting a 6.52 ERA, 1.862 WHIP and a 0-3 record. Fantasy owners and Nationals management need to figure out how to get tonight's version to show up more often.
     
    Cold8/21/2014 11:17:00 AM
    Description: Nationals left-handed starter Gio Gonzalez has not pitched well over his last four games, posting a 6.52 ERA, 1.862 WHIP and a 0-3 record.
    Insight: Gonzalez' ERA is up to 4.06 on the year. Despite his career 2-0 mark against the Diamondbacks, we suggest avoiding Gonzalez until he remembers how to pitch again.
     
    8/5/2014 10:25:00 PM
    Description: Nationals left-handed starter Gio Gonzalez has allowed nine runs on 14 hits in 9 2/3 innings his last two starts.
    Insight: Gonzalez' ERA is up to 4.01 on the year, but his FIP is nearly a run lower at 3.09. His poor luck with runners in scoring position should improve.
     
    Hot7/5/2014 7:46:00 PM
    Description: Nationals left-handed starter Gio Gonzalez continued his hot streak, extending his shutout innings to 22 straight.
    Insight: It's not quite up to Clayton Kershaw's level, but he's not far behind. He's making himself a must-start option.
     
    Hot7/5/2014 11:44:00 AM
    Description: Nationals left-handed starter Gio Gonzalez will look to continue his hot streak when he faces the Cubs at Nationals Park on Saturday afternoon.
    Insight: Gonzalez spun a two-hit gem over seven innings against the Cubs in his last outing, so fantasy owners should be salivating at the prospect of the outgoing southpaw facing them again. Since coming off the DL, Gonzalez has struck out 18 in 18 inings and maintained a 2.00 ERA.
     
    Hot6/28/2014 7:24:00 PM
    Description: Nationals starter Gio Gonzalez held the Cubs to two hits over seven shutout innings Saturday afternoon to pick up his fifth victory.
    Insight: Gonzalez has allowed just five hits over 13 scoreless innings in his last two starts and appears to be healthy after spending a month on the DL with shoulder inflammation.
     
    6/24/2014 9:12:00 AM
    Description: Nationals starter Gio Gonzalez threw six scoreless innings Monday at Milwaukee.
    Insight: The Brewers made Gonzalez work, getting him to throw 114 pitches and walking four times, but they couldn't scratch out a run. Gonzalez just returned from shoulder inflammation on June 18, so he must be feeling good if the Nats let him throw that many pitches.
     
    6/18/2014 10:21:00 AM
    Description: The Nationals have officially activated left-hander Gio Gonzalez from the 15-day DL.
    Insight: He'll be on the mound Wednesday against Houston. Gonzalez (3-4, 4.62 ERA) missed about five starts with shoulder inflammation.
     
    6/17/2014 5:52:00 PM
    Description: Washington starter Gio Gonzalez will start Wednesday against the Astros, according to James Wagner of the Washington Post.
    Insight: Gonzalez (3-4, 4.62 ERA) has been out for a month due to shoulder inflammation. He had a 2.91 ERA and 45 Ks in 43 1/3 innings prior to giving up 12 runs on 16 hits in 7 1/3 innings his last two starts before going on the DL.
     
    6/13/2014 8:27:00 PM
    Description: Washington starter Gio Gonzalez should be back in the rotation sometime next week. SOURCE: Dan Kolko, MASN
    Insight: Gonzalez (3-4, 4.62 ERA) has missed his last few turns because of shoulder inflammation. He's a must-start when healthy.
     
    6/6/2014 11:58:00 AM
    Description: Nationals left-hander Gio Gonzalez (shoulder) is scheduled to make a rehab start on Friday.
    Insight: He's targeting June 11 against the Giants for his return. Gonzalez was placed on the disabled list with shoulder inflammation on May 18. He's 3-4 with a 4.62 ERA and 1.34 WHIP.
     
    6/1/2014 2:55:00 PM
    Description: Nationals left-hander Gio Gonzalez (shoulder) threw a simulated game Sunday morning and is hoping to make a rehab start in five days, according to the Washington Post.
    Insight: He's targeting June 11 against the Giants for his return. Gonzalez was placed on the disabled list with shoulder inflammation on May 18.
     
    5/27/2014 9:06:00 PM
    Description: According to mlb.com, Nationals left-hander Gio Gonzalez (shoulder) has thrown on flat ground in each of the last four days.
    Insight: Gonzalez was placed on the disabled list with shoulder inflammation on May 18. He's nearing a bullpen session.
     
    Cold5/18/2014 3:25:00 PM
    Description: According to the Washington Post, Nationals left-hander Gio Gonzalez's enhanced MRI revealed no further damage besides inflammation in his shoulder. He doesn't need surgery.
    Insight: Over his last 7 1/3 innings, Gonzalez has allowed 16 hits, 12 earned runs, three homers and five walks and his ERA has increased from 2.91 to 4.62. He said Saturday that he was concerned with his arm slot consistently dropping during the past two starts and was diagnosed with shoulder inflammation Sunday. The Nats didn't wait for the results to come back to place him on the DL because the dye injected into his body for the MRI would have kept him out a while anyway.
