After Trevor Cahill (or K-Hill, if you prefer) turned in a sparkling performance yesterday in his three innings, adding to his hype, the pressure is now on new A's pitcher Edgar González, as he throws against Jarrod Washburn and the Mariners in today's game.
According to Wikipedia, RHP González (from Mexico) signed with Arizona in 2000, but was placed on the suspended list when he didn't report for assignment in the Dominican Republic. He made his MLB debut with Arizona in 2003; the youngest pitcher in baseball at the time; at 20 years old. González bounced between AAA and the big leagues from 2003 to 2006, but was on the Diamondbacks in 2007 out of the bullpen, and 2008 as a replacement starter.
