Adam Kilgore of the Washington Post reports that starter Gio Gonzalez is going on the 15-day disabled list with left shoulder inflammation. It’s the first stint on the DL in his career.

Gonzalez was shelled in his past two starts, allowing five earned runs in three innings to the Mets yesterday and seven runs in four and a third last Sunday to the A’s.

For his part, Gonzalez is trying to be optimistic:

“You know, it’s one of those things, you just got to keep grinding through. Just trying to find out what it is. Hopefully, something positive comes out of it. Other than that, just try to stay positive.”

Given his sudden ineffectiveness and his history of shoulder issues, one hopes that that optimism is more than mere wish casting.

    I guess since Biogenesis went down, Gio’s stress about his father not getting his anti-aging treatments is causing his shoulder to break down.

      Gio was cleared of any involvement with PEDs as a part of that investigation.

    Can you just let PED jokes go? This just one man’s opinion, but I enjoy watching the game and the ball players create my enjoyment. We now have a system to prevent PEB use. Lets get back to enjoying the great game of baseball. Additionally, I hope that he isn’t out to long, Gonzalez was always fun to watch. P.S. try watching and enjoying the game, you may rally enjoy it also.
