Analysis: Gonzalez is 2-0 with a 1.85 ERA over a string of five consecutive quality starts, so he could prove to be a useful stretch-run pickup for Texas. The veteran righty also has fared reasonably well at Globe Life Park, compiling a 2-2 record and a 3.14 ERA in five career starts there.

My friends." He's allowed only one run in back-to-back starts and four of his last six outings.

He had been 0-7 in 19 road starts since a victory at Tampa Bay for Baltimore on July 25, 2015.
