Gonzalez day to day with right groin strain

TORONTO -- Orioles starter Miguel Gonzalez exited after 5 1/3 innings with a right groin strain in Sunday afternoon's game against the Blue Jays and is considered day to day.

"I would say he's in jeopardy of missing a start," manager Buck Showalter said of Gonzalez, who grimaced after striking out Adam Lind to start the sixth, and was replaced by rookie righty Kevin Gausman. "We'll see how the next couple of days go. ... He said he felt it a little bit two pitches before. ... That's all I got from him out there."

Gonzalez has pitched to a 3.92 ERA in 26 starts and held Toronto to one run -- a solo homer from Lind -- on six hits and no walks. He also struck out two in the 86-pitch outing and said he first felt the groin issue a few pitches earlier while facing Lind.

"I thought I was feeling pretty good but it tightened up a little bit, so I thought, 'You know what? Better to get out and get ready for the next one,'" said Gonzalez, who was optimistic he would remain on turn.

"First time I've ever felt [any injury in that area]. So hopefully we can treat it and get better for my next start."
