Here's how a nine-pitch strikeout Tuesday night was worth $12 million to Nationals pitcher Gio Gonzalez:

When Gonzalez struck out Braves center fielder Ender Inciarte in the first at-bat at Nationals Park, the out pushed him to 180 innings pitched in 2017, triggering his option for the 2018 season.

According to the Washington Post, Gonzalez, 31, appeared hesitant to talk about the option, part of what the Post described as "part of a team-friendly ($42 million) deal negotiated by his former agents" before he hired Scott Boras.

“We’ll just focus and continue to strive to get better. … We’re not there yet so we got to focus,” Gonzalez said.

MIAMI - Gio Gonzalez and four relievers combined on a six-hitter, and the Washington Nationals beat the Miami Marlins for the eighth consecutive time, winning 8-1 Wednesday night . Gonzalez (14-6) pitched five scoreless innings but needed 101 pitches.

With the first out of his start Tuesday night , Gio Gonzalez activated a nice vesting option. In the top of the first inning against the Atlanta Braves Tuesday night , with a strikeout of outfielder and leadoff man Ender Inciarte, Gonzalez activated the vesting option.

Gonzalez, who took the loss Tuesday to fall to 14-7, nonetheless entered the start with the third-lowest ERA among qualified starters, behind only the Dodgers' Clayton Kershaw and teammate Max Scherzer. For context, the $12 million Gonzalez will be paid in 2018 is close to only a third of what Kershaw ($33 million) will earn.

In short, Gonzalez is a bargain, not only for what he brings to the Nats rotation but also the clubhouse. After next season? His price is going to go up.

Carcela-Gonzalez reveals he nearly signed for Arsenal .
Moroccan winger Mehdi Carcela-Gonzalez has revealed that he was close to signing for Premier League giants Arsenal in 2011, but picked up an unfortunate injury which scuppered his dream move, according to a report on Sport Witness. The winger, who now plays for Greek side Olympiacos, was remembering the times when he was one of the most sought after talents in European football alongside Belgian star Eden Hazard. In 2011, Gonzalez had already picked up one cap for Belgium and at the age of 22, had high hopes of his future. Arsenal were leading the chase for his signature and he had to decide whether to choose Belgium or Morocco as his International team. He said: “In 2011, that was the time when I was hesitating between Belgium and Morocco. I’d received quite a few offers from Arsenal, Marseille and Benfica.” “Negotiations were underway, then the accident happened.” The promising winger was unfortunately injured when he caught a boot to the face which resulted in him having several bones fractured in his face. Gonzalez eventually joined Russian club Anzhi Makhachkala and has gone on to play for Portuguese giants Benfica and Spanish La Liga side Granada, and has appeared for Olympiacos in the UEFA Champions League this season.
