The Rockies have outrighted right-handed pitcher Rayan Gonzalez to Double-A Hartford, according to Thomas Harding of MLB.com (Twitter link). The move will clear a spot on the 40-man roster, leaving the team with 38 players on the 40-man. Gonzalez, 28, had previously been optioned to Triple-A to begin the season.
Gonzalez has yet to pitch in an MLB game, and posted a miserable 21.60 ERA in three spring appearances, though he managed to punch out 4 batters in just 1 2/3 innings. Gonzalez has reached as high as Double-A, including a 2016 season in which he posted a 3.12 ERA. In 2018, though, he struggled to the tune of a 5.19 ERA in 17 1/3 innings at the level.
