PLAYER SPOT­LIGHT

Gio Gon­za­lez, Na­tion­als

USA TODAY Sports Weekly - - NL EAST -

While Max Scherzer and Stephen Stras­burg get most of the at­ten­tion atop the ro­ta­tion, Gon­za­lez has been nearly as good and has had fewer health scares this sea­son. In 16 starts from the be­gin­ning of June through the end of Au­gust, Gon­za­lez had a 2.29 ERA and al­lowed op­po­nents a .189 bat­ting aver­age against. In 20 of his first 27 starts this year, he al­lowed two earned runs or fewer.
