Unless you think that 2018 was a career year -- and remember this was the first year when he felt fully recovered from Tommy John surgery -- then I think you're about $2 too low. Seattle values him and the odds seem better than average that he will have good numbers (akin to 2018) and double-digit Wins. Even in 2018, there is a lot to like with a 4.5 K/W rate.

I'm working on Big Prices for the Guide. Today I have Marco Gonzales with a price of $7. What do you think?

In five games (all starts): 16.1 IP, 10 H, 1 HR, 6 BB, 13 SO, 2 ER. OppQual 8.3.

8.3 means facing batters who are better than AAA (8) and not nearly as good as MLB (10) and seems to be pretty much the default OppQual at Baseball-Reference.

In theory, OppQual should rise during the last week of spring training.

In any case, the Marco Gonzales who is fighting for a spot in the M's rotation continues to excel. AP4 is going to be $3 in tomorrow's update.

Marco Gonzales (P) SEA - Mar. 8

Gonzales fired four scoreless innings in Wednesday's 7-3 Cactus League loss to the
Athletics, allowing two hits and two walks while recording a strikeout.

ROTOWIRE RECOMMENDS: The 26-year-old southpaw has now racked up nine scoreless innings across a trio of starts to open spring training. Gonzales is averaging a strikeout per frame thus far as well, exhibiting much more confidence and efficiency than in last season's rocky 10-appearance (seven starts) stint with Seattle after being
acquired in a July trade with the Cardinals. His experience this spring is also a marked departure from his activity level at this time last year, given he was still in the midst of working back from April 2016 Tommy John surgery at that point, Greg Johns of MLB.com reports. "Very different," Gonzales said. "I wasn't even in games. I was throwing bullpens, barely. I'm grateful to be able to take the mound and feel good afterward."

Broke in in 2014, making five starts for the Cardinals and five relief appearances and winning four games, but then struggled with shoulder pain in 2015 and TJ in 2016. He was plagued by the longball last season, as he has been in his career, and certainly hasn't been helped by lost development time. As a fairly soft-tossing lefty he's reliant on his control and keeping the ball in the park for success, or lack thereof. One split worth pointing out: In his career he's 6.46 ERA as a starter (61.3 innings), and a 1.69 as a reliever (16 innings). There's talent here that needs to be put in position to succeed.
