 OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Gio Gonzalez got bounced a lot early in his career before eventually winding up with a home in Washington.
Earning the Warren Spahn Award as baseball's top left-handed pitcher, he says, was one way of saying thanks to Nationals general manager Mike Rizzo for believing in him and giving him a place to settle down.
Gonzalez was presented the award Thursday in Oklahoma City. He says it ``meant all the world to me'' when Rizzo got him in a trade with Oakland and then offered him a long-term contract to stay in Washington.
He finished the season with a 21-8 record, a 2.89 ERA and 207 strikeouts. The winner of the award is decided purely on statistics. It is named after Warren Spahn, the top-winning lefty in baseball history.
