Good luck to Chi Chi!!!....he's had a tough season but maybe a trip back to the majors will turn things around for him.....sometimes when young players get a taste of the big leagues and then get sent back their performance suffers...it's some kind of mental thing....Chi Chi sure seems to have the stuff to pitch in the major leagues....let's hope this time he sticks around.....we need more ORU guys in the big leagues!   :eagles:

Not a good outing for Chi Chi at Yankee Stadium on Monday night.....he went 5 innings giving up 10 hits, 5 ER with 2 BB and 2 Ks......the Rangers did come back to win 9-6 which took Gonzalez off the hook.....:mellow:

Well that's not the stuff that's going to keep him in the majors.

just 2/3 of an inning today.....the Rangers defense did him no favors -- botched 2 double plays and Moreland threw to the wrong base instead of taking an out.

i think Gonzalez needs more time in the minors....same issues as last year.   location problems and no put away pitch.

That's a shame....he was looking like a real stud 2 years ago but has fallen on hard times...but the good news is that Tommy John surgery has come a long way over the past decade and pitchers usually make a full recovery within 12-18 months and many times come back even stronger than before the operation....Cheech is still young at 24-25 so he has plenty left in the tank....maybe he can be back with the Rangers to join Jose Trevino as his battery mate....;-):eagles:

I saw where Chi Chi was not offered a contract for the 2018 season.  With his TJ surgery keeping him out of the game for all of 2018, he will probably pick up a minor league contract with someone to let him rehab at a much cheaper rate of pay.
