The San Francisco Chronicle reports that Gio Gonzalez is "a strong candidate" to be called up from Triple-A to start Thursday.
It would be the 22-year-old southpaw's major league debut. The A's had been planning on Dan Meyer making the start, but he threw four innings out of the bullpen Monday, leaving Lenny DiNardo as the only other candidate on the roster. Acquired from the White Sox in the Nick Swisher deal, Gonzalez is one of the game's better left-handed pitching prospects and has 128 strikeouts in 123 innings at Triple-A, but his 68 walks make it unlikely that he's ready to thrive in the majors yet.
