Gonzalez getting MRI on right side
Orioles starter Miguel Gonzalez is getting an MRI on his right side and could be headed to the disabled list. Gonzalez woke up with pain yesterday, and he is a little better today but it’s not terribly encouraging.
Gonzalez’s start on Thursday will go to Chris Tillman and the Os will likely shorten up Kevin Gausman in Triple-A tonight so he can be a Friday option. Tillman took a side session day yesterday and last pitched Saturday, so he’s on track.
No one is saying anything official, but Gonzalez’s symptoms seem to be some kind of oblique injury. If everything checks out OK on Wednesday, he could start on Saturday.
